Unity in Diversity: Indian and Western Philosophical Tradition

Autores: Carmen Dragonetti y Fernando Tola

Since many years we have been interested in a problem that worries many scholars in Indology : Whether Philosophy existed in ancient India. It is our idea that philosophical thinking has been an important part of Indian tradition all along its history and that its origin can be traced back to the Vedic epoch. Of course we admit that in Vedic texts philosophical thinking still appears in a rudimentary form, as “preformations” (we could say) that were to be developed in later centuries.
