Indian philosophy represents the world’s oldest philosophical tradition. It has had not only the longest and most continuous development, but also a rich and varies growth.The ancient Indian mind reveled in philosophical speculations from which emerged six schools of philosophy, popularly known as darsanas. Each school or system is associated with a sage as its first promulgator-Sankhya with Kapila, Yoga with Patanjali, Vaisesika with Kanada, Naya with Gautama, Mimamsa with Jamini and Vedanta with Badarayana.The system evolved in India as a result of the great thought ferment that characterized the post-Vedic age of thinkers.This volume provides a glimpse into the personality and the contribution of these great philosophers. It also mentions their contribution to the building up and enrichment of Indian culture.
