Origins of Indian Psychology

Origins of Indian Psychology (Paperback)
by N. Ross Reat (Author)
A brilliant study examining the development of the ancient theoretical psychological thought in India, starting from the pre-Vedic period and its maturation up to the early Buddhist period. It outlines the concept of monism in the Vedas, the Vedic concept of afterlife, the Vedic concept of the human being, in terms of individual identity, vital faculties and the mental organs. It should be of enormous interest to the students of religious as well as modern psychology.
