Название: A concise dictionary of Indian philosophy. Sanskrit terms defined in English
Автор: Grimes J.A.
A Concise Dictionary of Indian Philosophy (Sanskrit Terms Defined in English) is the outcome of a personal, experienced need in the field of Indian philosophy. The original work was compiled as an introduction to the basic terms found in the major schools of classical Indian philosophy. The terms fundamental to episiemology. metaphysics, and practical teachings were found therein. The schools dealt with here include: Buddhism, Jainism, Carvaka. Nyuya, Vaisesika. Sankliya. Yoga, MlmamsS, Vedanta (mainly but not exclusively Advaita, VisistSdvaita, Dvaita), Saiva Siddhanta, VTra Saivism, Kashmir Saivism, and Sivadvaita.
This new and revised edition has come about due to a continued correspondence with many readers of the first edition. Not only have I rearranged the placement of the devanagan script (to avoid the impression that it is not alphabetically correct), but I have added to "old" definitions as well as adding some five hundred new terms.
In the original work I strove to provide mainly philosophical terms since other dictionaries, encyclopedias, and word books exist in regard to Indian religious or, as 1 would prefer to call them, popular Hinduism, terms. My correspondence has led me to include at least some of these terms in this new edition.
Like its predecessor, thisdictionary, I hope, will serve as an introductory source-book with cross references wherever relevant. I have attempted to give the common or nontechnical definition of a word first, and then, if this word has a special meaning or meanings within a particular philosophical system, I have listed such. For example, a word like ;7va (individual soul) has fourteen different technical definitions listed since each school conceives of this concept differently.
