The Problem of Evil and Indian Thought


Beginning with the problem of evil in the West, Professor A.L. Herman traces the history of one of the most fascinating of all perennial philosophical puzzles (starting with St. Augustine, and continuing to St. Thomas Aquinas, Leibnitz, John Stuart Mill and others). Prof. Herman then turns to the problem of evil in Indian thought. Beginning with an examination of the Indian doctrine of samsara or rebirth, he examines its possible origins in the Vedas, its status in the Upanisads, the Bhagavad Gita, in several classical darsanas including Buddhism, Jainism, Vedanta, Samkhya and Nyaya. A major study of transmigration and reincarnation, with a bibliography and index/glossary.
