Description

In the History of Philosophy there have been certain figures for whom philosophy has been not so much a quest for true ideas as search for higher states of consciousness. Such thinkers tell us that ordinary experience is a dream, an illusion, a faint reflection of what is truly real, and that if we are to know the truly real we must awaken from the dream, enliven slumbering faculties, make a transition to a new state of awareness. Fichie and Sankara , the two thinkers with whom the present study is primarily concerned the philosophy of this category.
