Excerpt from Indian Thought Past and Present India for the past thirty centuries has brooded over the problem of the Universe. She has ceaselessly striven for some satisfactory answer to the question of the How and Whence and Wherefore of it all. Is the solution to be sought in Kantian and Gothic indi vidualism, in which each man is a law unto himself? Or, on the other hand, can it be asserted as a biological fact that the moral law is as real and ex ternal to man as the starry vault. It has no secure seat in any single man or in any single nation. It is the work of the blood and tears of long genera tions of men. It is not in man, inborn or innate, but is enshrined in his traditions, in his customs, in his literature and his religion.1 If this be true, as an ascertained fact of science, then is it any wonder that India should cling to the, heritage of her own past traditions, and seek to retain the birthright won for her by the intellectual labours and ascetic penances of past generations?

Excerpt from A History of Indian Philosophy, Vol. 4: Indian Pluralism The third volume of the present series was published in 1940. The manuscript of the fourth volume was largely ready at that time and it would have been possible to send it for publication at least by 1942. But the second world-war commenced in 1939 and although the Cambridge University Press was prepared to accept the manuscript even during war-time, the despatch of the manu script from Calcutta to Cambridge and the transmission of proofs to and fro between England and India appeared to me to be too risky. In 1945, after retiring from the Chair of Philosophy in the Calcutta University, I came to England. But Shortly after my arrival here I fell ill, and it was during this period of illness that I revised the manuscript and offered it to the University Press. This explains the unexpected delay between the publication of the third volume and the present one. The promises held out in the preface to the third volume, regarding the subjects to be treated in the present volume, have been faithfully carried out. But I am not equally confident now about the prospects of bringing out the fifth volume. I am growing in age and have been in failing health for long years. The physical and mental strain of preparing a work of this nature and of seeing it through the Press is considerable, and I do not know if I shall be able to stand such a strain in future. But I am still collecting the materials for the fifth volume and h0pe that I may be able to see it published in my life-time.

Excerpt from Studies in Early Indian Thought Hinduism, absorbed into its system; but, if we may judge by similar ways of thought in other countries, they remain very much the same as they were when the Aryans first came over the mountains. The mark made on the lower religion by the higher is external. The local godling becomes the son of Civa or Vishnu, or a form of Parvati and there the matter ends. The ritual and the thought, or belief that moulds the ritual, go on as before. On the other hand, the 'mark of the lower religion on the higher is internal: the ideas on which it was founded are taken up and assimilated, and what was unconscious in the lower race is realised and worked out in the higher. The present work is an essay, not an encyclo pedia; and much will have to be left out - the Dra vidians, with all the theories and problems, old and new, which gather about the mention of their name, and which may yet require us to revise from the beginning our accepted ideas of Indian society, the Epics, the Protestant movements of the Buddhists and Jains, and much else. Nor shall we have occa sion to dwell on the Brahmanas, which are the record less of thought than of practice; but the beliefs of the unthinking masses of the people will force them selves on our attention from time to time, for the reason that they provide the raw material of which thought is made.

This is the first volume of Surendranath Dasgupta's five volume work on the history of Indian philosophy. Starting with the earliest movements each philosophy is not just described but explained in detail and shown in its place in history. This includes vedic thought, yoga, buddhism and many others. Professor Dasgupta provides an argument that philosophy was the highest calling in India to the extent that it rivalled or even surpassed the ancient Greeks and provided unity across a large and diverse country. Certainly his writing will provide a radical change in world view to anyone unaccustomed to viewing India as a philosophical powerhouse. This book is written in clear language, but this is not a simple topic as it covers a huge range of thought and philosophies. The reader should be prepared for an education.

Excerpt from Brahman a Study on the History of Indian Philosophy Brahman will constantly be illustrated by the parallel develop ment in Judaism and Christianity while the philosophical aspects of the doctrine will, at least in their main features, be set Side by side with the corresponding ideas in the ancient and modern phi losophy of the West. The importance of the conception of Brahman in the history of Indian thought is indicated by the fact that the word Brahman has supplied the name to (i) a class of priests, the Brahmans; (2) a department Of ancient Sanskrit literature, the Brd/zmazzas; (3) the Ultimate Reality of the Vedanta, Brahma; (4) the first person of the later Hindu Trinity, Brahma (5) In dian religion before the Buddhist disruption, Brahmanism, and (6) the modern theistic movement known as the Brahma Samaj.

Excerpt from A History of Indian Philosophy, Vol. 3 The second volume of this work was published as long ago as 1932. Among the many reasons which delayed the publication of this volume, one must count the excessive administrative and teaching work with which the writer is saddled; his continued illness; the regrettable failure of one eye through strenuous work, which often makes him depend on the assistance of others; and the long distance between the place of publication and Calcutta. The manuscript of the fourth volume is happily ready. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Indian Philosophy, Vol. 2 The adoption of the critical method served to moderate the impetuosity of the speculative imagination and helped to Show that the pretended philosophies were not so firmly held as their professors supposed. But the iconoclastic fervour of the materialists, the sceptics and some followers of Buddhism destroyed all grounds of certitude. The Hindu mind did not contemplate this negative result with equanimity. Man cannot live on doubt. Intellectual pugilism is not sufficient by itself. The zest Of combat cannot feed the spirit of man. If we cannot establish through logic the truth of anything, so much the worse for logic. It cannot be that the hopes and aspirations of Sincere souls like the rsis Of the Upanisads are irrevocably doomed. It cannot be that cen turies of struggle and thought have not brought the mind one step nearer to the solution. Despair is not the only alter native. Reason assailed could find refuge in faith. The seers of the Upanisads are the great teachers in the school of sacred wisdom. They speak to us of the knowledge of God and Spiritual life. If the unassisted reason of man cannot attain any hold on reality by means of mere speen lation, help may be sought from the great writings of the seers who claim to have attained spiritual certainty. Thus strenuous attempts were made to justify by reason what faith implicitly accepts. This is not an irrational attitude, since philosophy is only an endeavour to interpret the widen ing experience Of humanity. The one danger that we have to avoid is lest faith Should furnish the conclusions for philosophy. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from A History of Indian Philosophy, Vol. 2 Such analogies of error naturally suggest the supposition that there must be some reality which is mistaken as some other thing; but, as has already been explained, the Buddhists emphasized the fact that, in dreams, the illusory appearances were no doubt objec tively known as objective presentations of which we had previously become aware - experiences through which we pass, though there is no reality on which these appearances rest or are imposed. It was here that Sankara differed. Thus, in his introduction to the commentary on the Brahma-3mm he says that the essence of all illusory perception is that one thing is mistaken for another, that the qualities, characteristics or attributes of one thing are taken for the qualities, characteristics or attributes of another. Illusion is defined as the false appearance in some object of something. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from A History of Indian Philosophy, Vol. 5 One of the peculiar traits of Dasgupta was that he seldom wished to learn anything from others. He had an inner pride that led him to learn everything by his own efforts. He never wanted any stimulus from outside. Whenever he took up any work, he threw his whole soul and being into it. He passed his m.a. In Philo sophy in 1910, as a private candidate, summarising all the pre scribed books in his own way. He was twice offered a state scholarship to study Sanskrit in a scientific manner in Europe, but as he was the only child of his parents, he refused out of consideration for their feelings. He began his service at Rajshahi College as an officiating lecturer in Sanskrit. He was soon provided with a permanent professorship at Chittagong College, where he worked from 1911 to 1920 and from 1922 to 1924.

Excerpt from The Six Systems of Indian Philosophy Selves placed, they did not know how or why? There was hardly any political life in ancient India, such as we know it from the Vedas, and in con sequence neither political strife nor municipal ambi tion. Neither art nor science existed as yet, to call forth the energies of this highly gifted race. While we, overwhelmed with newspapers, with parliamentary reports, with daily discoveries and discussions, with new novels and time-killing social functions, have hardly any leisure left to dwell on metaphysical and religious problems, these problems formed almost the only subject on which the old inhabitants of India could spend their intellectual energies. Life in a forest was no impossibility in the warm climate of India, and in the absence of the most ordinary means of communication, what was there to do for the members of the small settlements dotted over the country, but to give expression to that wonder at the world which is the beginning of all philosophy Literary ambition could hardly exist during a period when even the art of writing was not yet known, and when there was no literature except what could be spread and handed down by memory, developed to an extra ordinary and almost incredible extent under a care fully elaborated discipline. But at a time when people could not yet think of public applause or private gain, they thought all the more of truth; and hence the perfectly independent and honest character of most of their philosophy.

Excerpt from Studies in European Philosophy Dental mind. Oriental dreaming and inactive Quietism did not keep the speculative ideas of the Oriental peoples from having much that was fruitful for the History of Philosophy. These must be garnered into the treasuries of philosophic wisdom. Already in the philosophy of India we meet many notions that recur in later historical developments. And, in truth, India has a vast history of philosophy all its own. Besides which, if philosophy be said to be only where thought is free of the dominant religion, is it always sufficiently realised how free and independent much of the Indian philosophical thought was? Lacking the clearness and massiveness of Greek thought, of Indian philosophy one may yet very well maintain that it, with its speculative freedom and variety, transcended that of Greece in height - no small achieve ment. We are Occidentals, and have seen but in part. Besides, we must do justice to Oriental Philosophy at the outset of any history of intellectual development, in order that the greece-oriental Philosophy of the Alex andria of the Ptolemies may take its proper place in, and relation to, the historical development. No difficulty in translating Oriental mysticism and dreaming into terms of Occidental thought must keep these things from being done. Philosophy, taking thus its rise in the East, will remark the comparative absence of genuine speculative philosophy among the Chinese, whose Spiritism remained vague, indefinite, and uninspiring.

Indigenous scholars have been gathering, speaking, and writing about Indigenous knowledge for decades. These knowledges are grounded in ancient traditions and very old pedagogies that have been woven with the tangled strings and chipped beads of colonial relations. Pathways for Remembering and Recognizing Indigenous Thought in Education is an exploration into some of the shared cross-cultural themes that inform and shape Indigenous thought and Indigenous educational philosophy. These philosophies generate tensions, challenges, and contradictions that can become very tangled and messy when considered within the context of current educational systems that reinforce colonial power relations. Sandra D. Styres shows how Indigenous thought can inform decolonizing approaches in education as well as the possibilities for truly transformative teaching practices. This book offers new pathways for remembering, conceptualizing and understanding these ancient knowledges and philosophies within a twenty-first century educational context.

Excerpt from New Light Upon Indian Philosophy, or Swedenborg and Saiva Siddhanta Personally, we believe that the author's View of the case is essentially true, and that his attempt to explain the Saiva Siddhanta to the educated people of India in the light of Swedenborg's Spiritual teaching is a wise and right method. No one should be surprised that so much of Spiritual truth is to be found in an old philosophy fully constituted long before Christianity was preached in India; we must never forget that God, as St. Paul once told an Asiatic people of Lycaonia, in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways; nevertheless He left not Himself without witness. Thus it is that much which is true in Sweden borg may be found to harmonise with much which is true in the ancient thought of India.
