The volume of the Project on the History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization aim at discovering the main aspects of India`s heritage and present them in an interrelated way. These volumes, in spite of their unitary look, recognise the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The present volume on Advaita Vedanta consists of three sections: the first one covers classical Advaita; the second ne examines the impact of Advaita on contemporary Indian Philosophy; and the third one gives an account of Advaita in vernaculars. There are two dimensions in Advaita. While the empirical dimension known as the vyavaharika shows Advaita is a rigorous, systematic philosophy, the trans-empirical dimension known as the paramarthika brings out its mystical outlook. Advaita holds that there is no incompatibility between the empirical and the trans-empirical; because Brahman which is trans-empirical is the ground of the empirical; and there cannot by any contradiction or incompatibility between the ground and the grounded. The book will be of interest to scholars of Advaita philosophy and general readers alike.
