Understanding Indian philosophical traditions
Mid Sweden University, Faculty of Human Sciences, Department of Humanities.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-5425-6605

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.
