Book Description
About the Book
This work deals with the foundational concepts of Indian ethics in their origin and development. The three dimensions of morality i.e., social, religious and spiritual, are brought to light as dealt by Manu Smrti, Jaimini Satras and Bhagavad-Gita respectively. The author sincerely endeavors to construct the philosophical world-view presupposed and developed by these texts of special reference.

The aim of this book is to present a harmoniously interwoven ethical vision which is peculiarly Indian in its form and content. The lucid style and elaborate discussion of the subject matter make the book useful and interesting not only for the students of Philosophy but also for the common readership untrained in philosophy.

About the Author
Dr. Ila Ravi received his M.A., M.Phil and Ph.D from University of Hyderabad. He worked on Marxian Ethics for M.Phil. and on Indian Ethics for Ph.D. He is working in the Department of Philosophy, in SRR & CVR Govt. P.G. College, Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh.

The object of the study is to analyse some of the foundational Tconcepts of Indian ethics, in their evolution, with special reference to Manu Smrti, Jaimini Sutras and Bhagavad-Gita. Before further explanation of the object, it is incumbent on us to counter an important view which cuts at the root of our objective. It is concerning the very possibility of Indian ethics. Our object i.e., to examine the foundations of Indian ethics presupposes that there is something ostensively called Indian ethics. However, there are some western scholars who seriously doubt whether there is anything worth named 'ethics' in Indian thought. According to them, there is a conspicuous absence of systematic ethical theory in Indian philosophy. They claim that Indian thought itself is non-moral in the sense that its essential -features are not congenial to the development of a proper ethical system. This claim is not altogether groundless. However, on a closer examination, we find that the claim is infested with a considerable degree of astigmatism concerning the nature of Indian philosophy.
