Written with enviable clarity and incisiveness, and provided with helpful didactic material throughout, this up-to-date Introduction will become indispensable reading for all those interested in the fundamentals of Hindu and Buddhist philosophy (from ca. the second to the twelfth centuries C.E.).
The most remarkable achievement of this book is the demonstration of how each tradition of Indian philosophy is unified under some theme, such as the 'no self' theory and momentariness of the Buddhists. Bartley successfully displays the diagonal relations between the horizontal and the vertical; that is, he shows how a philosopher within a particular school borrows and develops a notion from a preceding philosopher of an opposing school.
Among the book's most impressive features is the abundance of primary textual material which has been translated by the author himself . . . it transforms the book from a mere introductory text into a resource for readers seeking a taste of the primary sources.
There is a lot to like about this book. It includes the key systems of classical Indian thought, is information dense, and draws on some key passages from primary texts.
