Jonardon Ganeri has combined scholarly engagement with philosophical clarity in this book. The topics are presented and discussed in such a way that they are immediately familiar to both analytic Western philosophers and philosophically-minded Indologists. This does justice to the classical Indian philosophers, who were both deeply embedded in an epistemic context and yet spoke on issues that are of concern to contemporary thinkers. Ganeri plays to his strengths, concentrating on traditions - Nyaya and the Mahayana Buddhist 'Logical' schools - and issues - logico-linguistic ones in particular - that speak directly, and often with surprisingly little context-specificity to contemporary analytic philosophy. There are original contributions on other schools as well, especially on Jaina approaches to the purposes and ends of debate. But this is not an essay in apologetics. The attempt is not to merely make a case for the Indian tradition to be taken seriously simply because it addresses issues in Anglo-American philosophy. Rather, Ganeri lets the tradition speak for itself, treating its own intrinsic search for clarity and rigour as self-evident. A framing chapter on the background and motivation of Indian philosophers makes it clear that there is no simplicistic ahistoric paradigm here. But once recognised, the background recedes, so that, in the manner of the classical thinkers themselves, full attention can be paid to metaphysical categories, the framework of epistemology, the use of language, the structures of logic, the rules and aims of debate. This book should be read by those tired of the unimaginative and pseudo-historicist presentations of Indian philosophy as made up of self-contained systems with mono-dimensional aims, as well as by those who want to expand the intellectual and cultural scope of analytic philosophy. This book goes beyond facile comparisions; it eschews them altogether, in favour of an internally coherent and textually informed exploration of thematic cross-currents that flow from classical India into today's global imaginaire.
