Abstract [en]

This chapter presents and criticizes three influential scholars’ ideas about how “Indian philosophy” and “Indian philosophical tradition” can be understood: Krishna Daya, Jitendranath Mohanty, and Wilhelm Halbfass. They have all reacted upon how Indian philosophy seldom is understood as proper philosophy within Western academia. I will argue for an extended way of apprehending tradition through the notion of philosophy by showing how the idea of siddhānta functions as a discursive and individualized activity of philosophizing within the Nyāya-Vaiṣeśika school.

Abstract [sv]

Detta kapitel tar upp några generella drag i hinduismens ritualer och levnadsregler men betonar också mångfalden i den hinduism som utövas idag. Den första delen behandlar ritualer och de platser som de utförs på. Den andra tar upp olika föreställningar om hur en hindu ska leva sitt liv och hur dessa ideer förmedlas.

Abstract [sv]

I detta kapitel undersöker jag hur två olika hinduiska föreställ-ningar kring vad människan är och vilken kapacitet och vilka verktyg hon har för att förändra sig själv. För det första hur människan träder fram som en skapande agent i världen i de tidiga Upaniṣaderna och för det an-dra hur hon framställs som stående i en personlig relation till en särskild gud eller gudinna i hängivenhetspoesin. Därigenomberör jag också kopplingen mellan guds- och gudinne-uppfattningar och män-niskosyn. Jag börjar i historien, hur dessa två bilder växer fram och vad de innebär. Genom texter som är centrala inom hinduismen  exemplifierar jag och tydliggör hur människan gestaltas, både i relation till sin egen kreativa kapacitet och till de gudar och gudinnor som är alltigenom närvarande för många hinduer i dagens Indien. Avslutningsvis tar jag upp temat ”kast, genus och sexualitet” för att belysa aspekter av dessa människosyner som ofta är frånvarande i läroböcker om hinduism.

Abstract [en]

The analysis in this article is driven by a question concerning how self (atman) has been thought by Vaiśesika philosophers within the Vaiśesikasutra commentarial tradition. That is to say, how the category of self is expressed, and how the thinking on self is structured, in Praśastapadabhasya, and in its commentaries Nyayakandala and Vyomavata. The idea of self is discussed within three main aspects: first, cognition and action; secondly, incentive and action; and lastly, merit, demerit, and liberation. The article shows how these interrelated factors are used in order to delineate a self that could be understood in two ways, bodily and disembodied. It is furthermore shown how the bodily self is in focus for these philosophers insofar as it is the key to the possibility of liberation (moksa) through the categories of acting and knowing.

Abstract [en]

The article concerns in what way thinking the sacrifice could be understood as ordering

thinking the human being as agent and in turn thinking the human being as knower. That is,

how it could be possible to conceive of a relationship or connection between sacrifice and

philosophy within Upaniadic thought.

Abstract [en]

This volume addresses the means and ends of sacrificial speculation by inviting a selected group of specialist in the fields of philosophy, history of religions, and indology to examine philosophical modes of sacrificial speculation — especially in Ancient India and Greece — and consider the commonalities of their historical raison d’être. Scholars have long observed, yet without presenting any transcultural grand theory on the matter, that sacrifice seems to end with (or even continue as) philosophy in both Ancient India and Greece. How are we to understand this important transformation that so profoundly changed the way we think of religion (and philosophy as opposed to religion) today? Some of the complex topics inviting closer examination in this regard are the interiorisation of ritual, ascetism and self-sacrifice, sacrifice and cosmogony, the figure of the philosopher-sage, transformations and technologies of the self, analogical reasoning, the philosophy of ritual, vegetarianism, and metempsychosis.

Abstract [en]

Although seldom mentioned in the secondary literature on Vaiśeṣika, the cognitive category of ārṣajñāna (ṛṣi cognition) is accepted as a distinct category of vidyā (knowledge) within both early and later Vaiśeṣika texts. This article deals with how ārṣajñāna is conceptualized in Praśastapādabhāṣya (PBh), Śrīdhara’s Nyāyakandalī (NK), and Vyomaśiva’s Vyomavatī (Vy). The main focus lies on how ṛṣi cognition is treated in these texts and what terms are used in the process. I aim to clarify the analysis of ṛṣi cognition apparent in the above sources and outline the implications this might have for the somewhat grander objective of a mapping of the semantic landscape of cognition and knowledge in Vaiśeṣika texts. The categories of yogic perception (yogipratyakṣa) and siddhic vision (siddhadarśana) are also treated since they are included within a shared discourse.
