Synopsis: The unit considers a range of topics in philosophy: metaphysics, ethics and theory of knowledge from an Indian perspective. The aim is to contrast the views of the conservative Hindu philosophers with those of the Indian heretics. Among the metaphysical topics special emphasis is placed on the theories of the self and their relation to interesting Hindu doctrines of Karma and Rebirth. The course also explores the relations between karma and other enigmatic traditional Indian concepts. www.arts.monash.edu.au/phil/undergraduate/lateryear.html
