Book Title:The Evolution of Hindu Ethical Ideals
Author(s):Crawford, S Cromwell
Publisher Name:Arnold-Heinemann
Place of Publication:Delhi
Date of Publication:1984
Annotation:Defining Hindu ethics as a dynamic process involving both continuity and change, Cromwell uses primary sources to argue for the existence of a single Hindu ethical tradition. He traces the evolution of Hindu ethics between the Vedic Period, the Sutra and Epic Period, and the Darsana Period, considering each on social, personal, and transcendental levels. Concluding with a brief application of Hindu ethics to environmental issues, he suggests that Hindu philosophy is able to provide a basis for an environmental ethic because of its unique ecological consciousness.
