Indeed, op: the Vedanta seems to me, from a mere phrase I read of it, that was considered, it seems, by its adherents, to be sufficient to become a jivanmukta, to be a greater philosophy than the West ever expounded! However, it must be admitted that the Platonists were close to it, before the closing of the Academy.
This was the phrase: ayam ātmā brahma - "This Self (Atman) is Brahman" That seems to me to be the very mystery of Christ!

Nothing. They have had, at various points in time, an analogue to to every pre-20th century Western philosophy. Sometimes before the west, sometimes after. When people laud eastern philosophy what they mostly mean is that the east had a very sophisticated variety of idealism developed well before Kant. The difference is there never was a hard split, at least in theory if not practice, between religion and philosophy in the east so learning about the various philosophies goes hand in hand with learning about and reading religious texts, which puts a lot people off.

Of course, none of these is a critical figure in Western philosophy.

"It is impossible to read the Vedanta, or the many fine compositions in illustration of it, without believing that Pythagoras and Plato derived their sublime theories from the same fountain with the sages of India."
- Sir William Jones ( 1746 – 1794)
This line of thinking pisses me off, if I'm understanding it correctly.

Especially when Indians have the illusory idea that "it was the Indians who first questioned reality."
There is NO evidence Plato (or any Greek philosopher, to my knowledge) had visited India or communed with Indians of any kind. In fact, it's questionable if any Greek had traveled as far as the Indus river before the time of Alexander, given the fantastical accounts and ideas they had about these regions beyond their reach. The idea that people, Indians especially, wish to credit the foundation of Western philosophy with Indians, is an absurdity. The fact is, if the Greeks have any infatuation with a people east of them, it's the Egyptians, and the Persians to a lesser degree. But those Eastern worldviews do not build well into the Western one, because it developed differently.
And we see more evidence of Plato building on earlier Greek philosophical ideas, and the intellectual environment of Greece, more so than anything else. How? Well, he obviously wrote dialogues on the basis of Greek individuals. But more explicitly, when you read the earlier presocratics, and read it with his Socratic dialogues, you can see where things like his Theory of Forms develop in their most embryonic stages. Consider the concepts of the presocratics. What do they focus on? In some cases, it's almost scientific explanations for things, such as the base material from which all others derive. In others, such as Heraclitus, it's a more prime ideal of thought, using the word "Logos." That's a far more sensible way to see where Plato began. Not some fantasy of Plato studying

The earliest Upanishads such as the Brihadaranyaka are usually dated to around the 8th century BC, before any of the Greek pre-Socratic thinkers, and it does contain passages discussing unreality and reality. Of course there may have been other thinkers Greek or non-Greek before this whose works we don't know of who also questioned reality, but as far as the stuff we can put on a timeline the Indian Upanishads were the first.

And I certainly never met with any orientalist who ventured to maintain that the Arabic and Sanscrit poetry could be compared to that of the great European nations. But when we pass from works of imagination to works in which facts are recorded and general principles investigated, the superiority of the Europeans becomes absolutely immeasurable. It is, I believe, no exaggeration to say that all the historical information which has been collected from all the books written in the Sanscrit language is less valuable than what may be found in the most paltry abridgments used at preparatory schools in England. In every branch of physical or moral philosophy, the relative position of the two nations is nearly the same.

The Upanishads explicitly assert consciousness to be of a transcendental and infinite nature, which identifies a subject of discussion that it seemingly took thousands of more years for the Western sphere to begin questioning. I've yet to see any writing in Western philosophy's early or middle period which specifically speaks of consciousness, or experience, rather than merely the "soul" or "mind".

So aside from what silliness Hindutva followers may say about the Vedas and Quantum Mechanics, it's simply incorrect to deny the Hindus were the earliest members in recorded history to provide their own theses on what has arguably become the largest question in Western science, and one whose answer may well converge to what the ancient Indians said so long ago. We'll have to wait and see where this conversation goes in the next few decades.

They're only doing that because some people on this website are unironically too nationalistic and racialistic to read anything non-European without the sanction of European authors. If not for that, some people here will just read the Western canon and assume it to be the "totality of complex human thought, ever recorded and passed forward".

Well they've been subsumed into what we presently refer to as "Hindu culture", whose followers are given the labels of "Hindus", and since I'm not sure what else to refer to them as, the point is that "a group of people from that region of the planet in that specific time-period" were already presenting nuanced opinions of subjects that would take the rest of the world a much longer period of time to similarly question. Not to mention ascribing the issue with the fundamentality that they did, which also parallels today's conversations on consciousness as potentially being central to an explanation of reality (which highly influential men like Schrodinger, who was personally influenced by Vedanta, expressed alignment with himself). And the modern people we name "Indians" or "Hindus" are the ones who've inherited the former groups traditions, so regardless of the latter's background the former group are the ones who deserve credit for the proper continuation of said culture.

Brahmins. India had the initial infusion from the Vedic Aryans, but smothered them in Brahman poo ritualism. Then India had sramanas, yoga, tantra, Buddhism, and Jainism, which was the great spiritual revolution in India that everybody talks about. The Brahmins watered it all down and turned it into a smelly poo ritualism version. A few hundred years went by again and the Buddhists again revolutionized spiritualism and philosophy in India, and the Brahmins came along again and smothered it in poo.

There are three types of Indian-phil posters:
1.Zealous Guenonfags and Advaitafags
2. Anti-indian phil and falseflaggers who are opposed to type 1.
3. People who wish to discuss it as any other literature, but are dogpiled by falseflaggers, Guenoncucks and poo-in-looposters.

Does /lit/ have a significant poo population? I didn't browse the board on the meme days with flags over all of 4chan. I'm also curious where the guenonfags come from. Some schizautist anon made a connection to a self hating larpagan swede, what that confirmed?

No it’s true. Through late Roman rep. And empire, high philosophy was not really developed. Only self help and livelihood stuff. I mean, I enjoy the stoics, early Christians, and scholasticists, but they never went further than Aristotle and only reinterpreted.
