A Sourcebook in Indian Philosophy by Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan,Charles A. Moore



A Sourcebook in Indian Philosophy Paperback – April 1, 1967. by Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (Author), Charles A. Moore (Author). While I admittedly have only skimmed through a few chapters, this book appears to be genuine in it's findings and not biased or of a political agenda. Some of you reading this may be familiar with Alan Watts. He's one kind of mystic and teacher, the spiritual entertainer who gives you his take on this source material. This is the source itself, I highly speculate, if not - very close to a compendium of Indian philosophy through the ages. Of course, one can begin chronologically with the Rig Veda, but if you find that in a book store most likely it'll be a compendium itself!

A philosopher and scholar, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was also a statesman, even to the extent of serving as India's president from 1962 to 1967. Brought up as a devout Hindu but also educated in Christian missionary schools, Radhakrishnan's philosophy often was comparative, finding lines of convergence and divergence between East and West. Based in Vedantic idealism, Radhakrishnan affirmed the necessity of an experience of the absolute as the basis of any truly profound grasp of reality

Bharat Ratna Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was an Indian philosopher and statesman. He was the first Vice-President of India (1952–1962) and subsequently the second President of India (1962–1967). One of India's most influential scholars of comparative religion and philosophy, Radhakrishnan is thought of as having built a bridge between the East and the West by showing that the philosophical systems of Bharat Ratna Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was an Indian philosopher and statesman.

While I admittedly have only skimmed through a few chapters, this book appears to be genuine in it's findings and not biased or of a political agenda.
Some of you reading this may be familiar with Alan Watts. He's one kind of mystic and teacher, the spiritual entertainer who gives you his take on this source material. This is the source itself, I highly speculate, if not - very close to a compendium of Indian philosophy through the ages. Of course, one can begin chronologically with the Rig Veda, but if you find that in a book store most likely it'll be a compendium itself! The Rig Veda is somewhere around 1000 separate "hymns" and each one is at least a page... not to mention there are 3 other Vedas. All in all this is a nice compendium, and a good book to travel around with and read wherever you may have idle time. Especially if you're the philosophical type.

I've read philosophy for some years, including Eastern philosophy, and this book has been an excellent experience! Great, concise picture of important works produced by India thousands of years ago but still valid if what you're looking for is something more than the discussion of theories not related to your daily, practical life. Although not a religious person, for the first time in my adult life I've started to find many, rational ways to reconciliate intuition and reason (the old Western, mainly fictious, dichotomy between heart and mind), and that's a lot! I recommend reading and re-reading, and studying and even making intimately yours (by heart) many of the teachings you'll find in A Source of Indian Philosophy
