Summary
Featuring leading scholars from philosophy and religious studies, 'The Bloomsbury Research Handbook of Indian Ethics' dispels the myth that Indian thinkers and philosophers were uninterested in ethics. This comprehensive research handbook also traces Indian moral philosophy through classical, scholastic Indian philosophy, pan-Indian literature including the 'Ramayana' and 'Mahabharata', Ayurvedic, medical ethics, as well as recent, Neo-Hindu contributions. Contrary to the usual myths about Indian thought, moral theory is present in its paradigmatic form in formal Indian philosophy, and is reflected richly in popular literature. Many of the papers make this clear by drawing critical comparisons and contrasts between classical Indian moral philosophy and contemporary contributions to ethics. By critically addressing ethics as a sub-discipline of Indian philosophy and acknowledging the mistaken marginalization of Indian moral philosophy, this handbook reveals how Indian contributions can illuminate contemporary philosophical research on ethics. Unlike previous approaches to Indian ethics, this volume is organized in accordance with major topics in moral philosophy. - Back cover
