Yoga: The Indian Tradition


Carpenter, David
Yoga: The Indian Tradition
ISBN: 0700712887
Book Number: 48597
RoutledgeCurzon March 2003 8vo Pictorial hardcover. 206pp. Index. Highlighting in two chapters otherwise new looking copy. What is distinctive about this volume is its attention to careful historical analysis, a focus on the practice of yoga, and critical philosophical reflection. The essays collected here provide a sense of the historical emergence of the classical system presented by Patanjali, a careful examination of the key elements, overall character and contemporary relevance of that system, as found in the Yoga Sutra, and a glimpse of some of the tradition's many important ramifications in later Indian religious history.
