Warum fehlt es seit der Neuzeit an einer lebendigen indischen philosophischen Tradition?

EUR 14.90

The view in intercultural philosophy that there is philosophy in all cultures, does not hold in relation to Indian thought. Since modern times a vibrant Indian philosophical tradition has been lacking. Against the background of a reconstruction of the logic of negation in the classical texts of Indian thought, the essay asks for the causes of the end of this philosophical tradition. It shows that its causes can be found in a dialectic of the self-repeal of reason and in the dependence of Indian philosophical thinking upon religious tradition.
