Concealed Art of the Soul Theories of Self and Practices of Truth in Indian Ethics and Epistemology


In The Concealed Art of the Soul, Jonardon Ganeri presents a variety of perspectives on the nature of the self as seen by major schools of classical Indian philosophy. For Indian thinkers, a philosophical treatise about the self should not only reveal the truth about the nature of the soul, but should also engage the reader in a process of study and contemplation that will eventually lead to self-transformation. Ganeri discusses the Upanisads, the Buddha's discourses, the epic Mahabharata; he shows that many Western theories of selfhood are developed to a high degree of sophistication in these writings.
