    1. dense and deliberate. this is a historical document (1923), of english academic style, though i do not know how significantly different is current understanding of indian philosophy. i have grown up more or less a-religious, but in a nominally christian society, so have no sense of either the original texts eg. vedas, upanishads, epics, or the usual human corruption of faiths eg. brahmanism and caste, buddhism and dissolution, and no idea of more contemporary thinkersi found it very useful on ve [...]


    2. Got a philosophical question? India got there first. The two vols by Radhakrishnan and several other "short" introductions to the traditions of the subcontinent are my intro course for the next book. SR makes some great jokes when linking lines of argument and observation in India's traditions to the works of European philosophers. It sounds like after learning his whole tradition, the Euro stuff was a nice review. A refreshing turn of the table.



    3. A comprehensive work on Indian philosophy, with even the basics covered You don't have to worry if you don't know anything, you can go straight into it Because everything is explained word by word And that too, like notes. And that itself is the main problem with this book. Reading it is much time-consuming since it is unnecessarily elaborative for a regular philosophy reader It's definitely not something I'd suggest to a student for first reading. It will make you bored like anything. But if yo [...]


    4. Радхакришнан вписывает тексты древнего буддизма в европейский контекст и показывает то, что сразу бросается в глаза при их чтении, - что Кант, Бергсон, Юм, Шопенгауэр - просто дети по сравнению с древними индусами. То, что Кант излагает в девятнадцатом веке, индусы обсудили м [...]


    5. "Indian Philosophy" by S. Radhakrishnan, the second president of India, beautifully depicts the transition of Indian Thought from Rig Veda to Ramanuja. The reason why Indian Philosophy is regarded as one of the best around the world is due to its progressive nature of transforming itself according to the needs of the present time. Also, it is one of the few philosophies, which recognize the three states of human: conscious, unconscious and subconscious. Indian Philosophy can be broadly divided i [...]


    6. 对于追求spiritual growth的人,我强烈推荐这本书。“奥义书的哲学”一章是本书的精华,作者非常清晰地解释了这个世界与Brahma/Atman (神,是absolute,infinite) 的关系。作者解释了Sankara(中文名商羯罗,他的观点类似黑格尔的absolute idealism)和 Ramanuja(单神论)的观点,并且把二者统一了起来:Sankara是从intelligence出发能够达到的最终解释,而Ramanuja的解释满足了人们对宗教和devotion [...]


    7. This is a standard version of Indian Philosophical thoughts that I'd safely recommend for all students of philosophy. Volume 1 of Indian Philosophy by Radhakrishnan, an Advaita himself, mostly deals with the early philosophical texts that originated here. I read the Vedas, Upnishads, the Epic Literature, Bhagvad Gita, The Materialists, Buddhism and Jainism. A very interesting read with all the necessary references and sources. Radhakrishnan was a grand master in philosophy and he did a huge cont [...]


    8. I bought this book to validate one of my friend's claim who during our discussions mentioned that Hinduism as a religion has been strongly influenced by Greek religion and cited it as the reason for similar God's in both histories. I found a reasonable explanation in this book as to why this claim is made and why is it likely not true - so the book served its purpose.It's a great book to learn about the spiritual development in India. The author discusses the key teachings of Vedas, Upanishads, [...]


    9. For people who want to know how Indians, that tribe to the east of River Indus developed a way of life from pre historic times to the time of Ramanujam, this is a must read. One can't help but wonder how people realized the potential of looking in wards and understanding life. Dr. Radhakrishnan explains in detail about philosophies that have evolved as an off shoot of this thinking of going inwards. At the end of the book, you feel proud that our ancestors were the first in the world to be using [...]


    10. Great book to introduce the Indian philosophy. A bit biased but perhaps that is understandable when considering the place of that philosophy when the book came out.The language is academic but not too hard and it covers the vast ideas of the sub-continent. I am looking forward to read 2nd part. Hey!! if anyone has this and want to share


    11. Aargh, this was impossible to read. It's written in that early 20th century, dense British scholarly styleI kept trying until finally the library needed it back. Maybe some other time, or another more accessible book on the same topic.



    12. Good coverage of Indian philosophy from Vedic times, through the Upanishads, and up through Buddhism and the Bhagavad-Gita.




    13. This is a well written book on philosophy. Dr Radhakrishnan has simplified through his language the difficult subject of philosophy. Great work.
