Product Description

Review

In this clear, analytical, well-documented, and well-argued book, Nicholson discusses the conflicts among the various systems of Hindu philosophy and the contributions of the late medieval and early modern thinkers in reconciling the systems and arriving at a unifying picture of Hinduism in Advaita Vedanta. Choice This path-breaking work is very helpful and a must read for scholars of Indian history, Hinduism and south Asian religious traditions. -- Vineeth Mathoor Metapsychology Nicholson has created a tour-de-force that puts India's premodern thinkers in conversation with its postmodern intellectuals. -- Christopher Key Chapple Journal of the American Academy of Religion In this marvelously clear, meticulously researched, and tightly argued book which promises to change the scholarly conversation on Hindu identity, Nicholson sets the record straight regarding the historical emergence of what is today widely known as Hinduism... -- Jeffery D. Long Religious Studies Review Given the enormous scope of its enquiry, the work is relatively concise, very accessible and therefore suitable for the advanced undergraduate or graduate classroom. More than this, it belongs on the bookshelf of anyone interested in the history, and historiography, of Indian philosophy. -- Reid Locklin Sophia Lucid and accessible, Andrew Nicholson's book offers an excellent model for South Asianists seeking to engage with the wider field of religious studies. Journal of the Amer. Academy of Religion
