Publisher's Summary

The object of this book is to provide a simple introduction to the Indian systems of philosophy. Each one of these systems has had a vast and varied development. Attempt has been made to introduce the listener to the spirit and outlook of Indian philosophy and help him to grasp thoroughly the central ideas rather than acquaint him with minute details. Modern students of philosophy feel many difficulties in understanding the Indian problems and theories. Their long experience with university students has helped the authors to realise these, and they have tried to remove them as far as possible. This accounts for most of the critical discussions which could otherwise have been dispensed with.

Very poor narration.

Book content is very good but very poor modulation and narration. I wish Audible offers the text version (Kindle ebook would do) along with the Audio book so that we can follow better especially if the narration is not that good like this specific book.

Horrible pronunciation of Sanskrit words. Very often they were pronounced wrong and some case possibly changing the meaning of the word.

A good beginning

Nice apart from a little grammatical errors. Expecting more audible books on Philosophy. Hope to listen more

Comprehensive

This book is really the final frontier when it comes to a sound education on Indian Philosophy. It goes in-depth into each school, and puts things in context. The narrator is easy to follow, and has a very good rhythm in how the content is unpacked. I highly recommend this. Get schooled!
