In this book, Professor Mohanty develops a new interpretation of the ontology and nature of Indian philosophical thinking. Using the original Sanskrit sources, he examines the concepts of consciousness and subjectivity, and the theories of meaning and truth, and explicates the concept oftheoretical rationality that underlies the Indian philosophies. The author brings to bear insights from modern Western analytical and phenomenological philosophies, not with a view to instituting direct comparisons but in order to interpret Indian thinking. In doing so, he highlights some verydistinctive features of Indian thinking.

Editorial Reviews

`An interesting and important contribution to the scholarship of Indian philosophy ... I believe the book has made an excellent case for treating Indian philosophy as philosophy ... it is required reading for anyone in the Western tradition concerned with Indian philosophy, and for anyoneinterested in pursuing the thesis of an incompatibility of Western and Indian philosophical thought.'Canadian Philosophical Reviews
