1 Review
The five volumes of this series bring together some of the most significant modern contributions to the study of classical Indian philosophy. The selections in these volumes give readers easy access to some of the best philosophical works in the area, including material that is often difficult to locate.

In addition to journal articles, some essential book chapters have been included, and the introductions to each volume include references to significant books. The selections chosen are all in English, and the use of unglossed Sanskrit terminology has been kept to a minumum. The volumes in this set are also available individually.
