About the Author

Tara Chatterjea taught philosophy for over seventeen years at Lady Brabourne College, University of Calcutta.


Tara Chatterjea's collection of essays is comparative philosophy at its best, properly grounded in a thorough knowledge of the Sanskrit texts but also wide-ranging in its grasp of issues relevant to traditional and modern European philosophizing. Theory of knowledge, philosophy of mind, ethics, and philosophical psychology are all critically explored from the perspectives of traditional Indian philosophy and modern western thought. -- Gerald James Larson, Indiana University
These essays shed much-needed light on some central topics in classical Indian epistemology and ethics. Chatterjea deftly explores what a variety of Indian philosophers have had to say about truth and its place in the correct analysis of knowledge. She has many interesting points to make about the nature and overall structure of Indian ethics. Her readings of the texts and their tradition are philosophically astute, and suggestive of novel approaches to solving some key philosophical problems. -- Mark Siderits, Illinois State University
Tara Chatterjea's book satisfies the two challenges that anyone aspiring to advance Indian philosophy has to meet: a close study of the Sanskrit texts and a critical ability to analyze, formulate, and question the positions and arguments. In both regards, the essays in this book are exemplary contributions. -- J N. Mohanty, Temple University
