The fourth volume of A History of Indian Philosophy deals with the philosophy of Madhava and his followers in their bitter relation with the monistic thought of Sankara and his followers. It also deals with the theistic philosophy of the Bhāgavatapurāna and the theistic philosophy of Vallabha and the followers of Sri Caitanya. Among the theistic philosophers, the followers of Madhava, Jayatirtha and Vyāsatirtha occupied a great place as subtle thinkers and dialecticians. This volume has also been devoted to the study of various forms in which the emotional relation of devotion or bhakti differentiates itself as associated with their philosophical perspectives.
