Studies in Jaina history and culture : disputes and dialogues by Peter Flügel( Book )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last ten years have seen interest in Jainism increasing, with this previously little-known Indian religion assuming a significant place in Religious Studies. "Studies in Jaina History and Culture" breaks new ground by investigating the doctrinal differences and debates amongst the Jains rather than presenting Jainism as a seamless whole whose doctrinal core has remained virtually unchanged throughout its long history. The focus of the book is the discourse concerning orthodoxy and hereby in the Jaina tradition, the question of omniscience and Jaina logic, role models for women and female identity, Jaina schools and sects, religious property, law and ethics. The internal diversity of the Jaina tradition and Jain techniques of living with diversity are explored from an interdisciplinary point of view by fifteen leading scholars in Jaina Studies. The contributors focus on the principal social units of the tradition: the schools, movements, sects and orders, rather than Jain religious culture in abstract.; Flugel provides a stimulating and representative snapshot of the current state of Jaina studies that will interest students and academics involved in the study of religion or South Asian cultures
Jaina scriptures and philosophy by Peter Flügel( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interest in Indian religion and comparative philosophy has increased in recent years, but despite this the study of Jaina philosophy is still in its infancy. This book looks at the role of philosophy in Jaina tradition, and its significance within the general developments in Indian philosophy. Bringing together chapters by philologists, historians and philosophers, the book focuses on karman theory, the theory of conditional predication, epistemology and the debates of Jaina philosophers with representatives of competing traditions, such as Ājīvika, Buddhist and Hindu. It analyses the relationship between religion and philosophy in Jaina scriptures, both Digambara and Śvetāmbara, and will be of interest to scholars and students of South Asian Religion, Philosophy, and Philology"--
