This book is written by Prof: Nerendra Nath Bhattacharyya, a teacher in the Dept... of ancient Indian History. He works at ease in diverse branches of ancient Indian History and Civilizations. Here he interprets the fundamentals of Jain Philosophy from the viewpoint of their historical genesis and development and shows that the incipient stage of the Jain thought - complex agreed totally with the Pythagorean approach to philosophy which was based on observed relatives and was quite in harmony with the existing Socio - Political conditions of the time of the lord Mahavira, while the sophisticated stages marked by the a priori doctrines and dogmas, it had generated in course of its development and by the traditionally floating ideas in regard to the belief in a moral order in the universe, the eternal. Law of karma ignorance as the cause of bondage and knowledge as that of liberation the efficacy of meditation, and so forth, was a persistent juxtaposition in the evolutionary stages of the former. Since no system of Indian philosophy allows a purely isolated treatment, a comparative study of all the philosophical systems has been made here to determine the real nature of the jain stand point with more emphasis on the original dynamism of jainsm which had contributed to the growth of various natural sciences, including those of biology and astronomy, on the total rejection of the concept of a supernatural agent in the form of God, on the theories of valid knowledge and on the unique logical system based on the principals of relativity.
