This treatise is a critical study of the different systems of Indian Philosophy. The study is based on the original sources, and its principal value lies in their interpretation. On almost all fundamental points, the author has quoted from the original texts. The book is divided into 20 chapters, and opens with the survey of Indian philosophical thought as found in the Vedas, and proceeds to the study of Materialism, Jainism, and Early Buddhism. It expounds the tents of six systems of Indian philosophy with special reference to Sankara, and discusses the doctrines of Vedanta as interpreted by Ramanuja, Madhva, Nimbarka, Vallabha, Caitanya, and Aurobindo.
