Indian Philosophies, Ethics, and Pragmatism - Part 2

The first part of this paper discussed the role of philosophy in human evolution, and the pivotal role ethics plays in Indian philosophies. The paper also discussed the common vedic origin of the six great Indian philosophies. Philosophy essentially being an exploration into the ultimate truth of life and existence, leads one to greater understanding of the fundamental nature of life. This understanding, in turn, gives one a certain purpose, intent and orientation on the evolutionary path and becomes a better version of oneself, in this life, here and now. A purposeful evolution-oriented life steadies and purifies one’s mind and its activities. A self-disciplined, purposeful and conscious orientation in life gives rise to ethical behaviour towards everything external and internal to oneself

Abstract


The first part of this paper discussed the role of philosophy in human evolution, and the pivotal role ethics plays in Indian philosophies. The paper also discussed the common vedic origin of the six great Indian philosophies. Philosophy essentially being an exploration into the ultimate truth of life and existence, leads one to greater understanding of the fundamental nature of life. This understanding, in turn, gives one a certain purpose, intent and orientation on the evolutionary path and becomes a better version of oneself, in this life, here and now. A purposeful evolution-oriented life steadies and purifies one’s mind and its activities. A self-disciplined, purposeful and conscious orientation in life gives rise to ethical behaviour towards everything external and internal to oneself
