Classical Hindu Thought

Oxford University Press

Classical Hindu thought did not suddenly emerge fully fashioned in every respect. Even within the classical period, the key concepts underwent change, or at least refinement and realignment. The constituent elements of classical Hinduism emerged in a certain order—a chronological order, as they achieved a certain logical order. This chapter attempts the task of historically surveying the emergence of the various key concepts of classical Hinduism. It concludes with a reference to the position of the Vedas.

Keywords:   Hinduism, classical Hindu thought, Hindu key concepts, Vedas
