Since its first publication, A Study of Time in Indian Philosophy has been acclaimed as having successfully shown ‘the simple falsity’ of such clichés that the Indian view of time is ‘cyclic’ or that it is exclusively ‘illusory’. Given the variety of views discussed in this work, it is evident that the theme of time is intimately related to such basic concepts as being and becoming, change and causality, creation and annihilation. It has been therefore, observed that this book makes an excellent introduction to the heart of Indian thought. Based on Sanskrit source material, this book is a unique attempt to presenting a comprehensive review of the widely divergent views about time in Indian thought. Clearly written, it succeeds in setting out the issues of discussion pointedly and cogently. Since the concept of time intervenes with such major concepts as that of causality, being and non-being etc., this book also "serves as a general introduction to the classic heart of Indian Philosophy." The author "has demonstrated a rare ability to translate technical doctrines from one tradition of thought into the language of another", and thus has made it possible- for all those who are concerned with the question of time but do not have access in the Indian conceptual world to appreciate the contributions of Indian thought with regard to this complex question. Noteworthy is the fact that this book is the first attempt which "successfully exposes the simple falsity" of such clichés as that the Indian view of time is ‘cyclic as opposed to the Judaeo-Christian understanding of linear time. A Study of Time in Indian Philosophy, therefore, renders a valuable service to all those who are concerned with cross-cultural and inter religious exchange.Printed Pages: 200.
