A Vedic perspective on Western philosophy.
From Socrates to Sartre, Western philosophers have grappled with the ultimate questions:"What is the meaning of life?", "Does God exist?", "What is the supreme good, and how can we achieve it?".
A thoughtful person should be eager to learn the solutions to these mysteries - yet he or she will look in vain for conclusiveanswers from Western thinkers. As brilliant as their writings are, they leave us in doubt, wondering if these questions can ever truly be answered.
"Yes, they can," declares the author of Beyond Illusion and Doubt, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, whom scholars and spiritual leaders worldwide recognize as the mostdistinguished teacher of Indian culture and philosophy of the modern age.In this remarkable series of conversations on the ideas of fifteen leading Western philosophers, Srila Prabhupada points out the ideas' good points and defects,presents the Vedic view, and outlines the process of yoga by which we can transcend illusion and doubtin our own lives and proceed with certainty on the path to perfection.
