A Modern Introduction to Madhva Philosophy


The author has made this treatise on Madhva’s realistic school of Vedānta philosophy convincing to the modern mind by employing western logical apparatus in substantiating Madhva’s ideas. Following the Indian classical tradition, the author has examined the validity of Advaitavedānta, the Absolute Monism of Śaṅkara and Bhāskara as Pūrvapakṣa, and logically proved its inconsistencies. He has then established the Dvaitasiddhānta i.e., the Monotheistic Dualism of Madhva. He has successfully brought out the nuances of the realistic school of Indian philosophical thought in this work. A Modern Introduction to Mādhva Philosophy is Prof B H Kotabagi’s posthumous publication.
