Indian Philosophy: A Very Short Introduction

Sue Hamilton

Very Short Introductions

  • There is currently a great deal of interest in understanding different ways of thinking, and much of this interest is directed to Indian worldviews
  • The book introduces distinctively Indian concepts such as karma and rebirth
  • It also shows that many of the issues on which Indian philosophy focuses are common to those of Western philosophy
  • Indian thought differs from the Western tradition in that religion and philosophy are not separate undertakings
  • Sue Hamilton is an authority on the subject, and has published widely on Buddhism thought and Indian philosophy more generally
