The philosophical significance of Jainism extends far beyond its statistical presence in India and the world, for it lies in the unique quality of its thought. This book is an attempt to take its insights into account for the light they shed on issues customarily debated in the Philosophy of Religion as it has evolved in the West. It is in line with other works of the author of a similar nature: A Hindu Perspective on the Philosophy of Religion (1990); The Philosophy of Religion: A Buddhist Perspective (1995) and The Philosophy of Religion and Advaita Vedanta (1995).
