This chapter presents Anukul Chandra Mukerji's 1937 essay, “Śankara's Theory of Consciousness,” in which he defends Śankara's account of consciousness as an exposition of Advaita Vedānta. Mukerji was a scholar of Western and Indian philosophy and specialized in epistemology, with a special interest in idealism and the problem of self-knowledge. He published two books during his life, The Nature of Self (1933) and Self Thought and Reality (1938). In his essay, Mukerji expounds on Śankara's commentary on the Praśnopanisad and his classification of the principal theories of consciousness, each of which had its enthusiastic exponents in the history of Indian speculation.

Keywords:   consciousness, Anukul Chandra Mukerji, Śankara, Advaita Vedānta, Western philosophy, Indian philosophy, Praśnopanisad
