Ancient Philosophies of India

Jul 20, 2015

The six schools of philosophy developed in India with the beginning of the Christian era. These were as following: 1) Yoga, 2) Nyaya, 3) Mimamsa, 4) Vedanta, 5) Vaisheshikha and 6) Samkhya. The exact dates of formalizing the six systems are not known, as the studies were originally purely oral, since writing had not yet been created. However, estimates generally range from about 2,000-3,000 or more years ago. Some say the roots of these are as much as 5,000-10,000 years ago, or more.
