This site contains a bibliography of the philosophical literature of India during its classical phase, and the secondary material on this literature that is available (for the most part) in English. For purposes of definition, philosophical literature has been deemed to be that which is of philosophical interest throughout, theoretical rather than purely practical in its intended function, and polemical or at least expository in a context where defense of one view among alternatives is appropriate

The site is an expanded version of the Bibliography which appeared as Volume I of Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies. There have been three printed editions of this Bibliography: 1st edition 1970, 2nd revised edition 1983, and 3rd revised edition 1995. This electronic version is occasionally corrected and updated, and the date below shows the latest version.
