Epistemologies and the Limitations of Philosophical Inquiry: Doctrine in Mādhva Vedānta

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 2005 - History - 101 pages
Deepak Sarma explores the degree to which outsiders can understand and interpret the doctrine of the Mādhva school of Vedānta. The school is based on insider epistemology which is so restrictive that few can learn its intricate doctrines. This book reveals the complexity of studying traditions based on insider epistemologies and encourages its audience to ponder both the value and the hazards of granting any outsider the authority and opportunity to derive important insights into a tradition as an insider.
