Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Text and Authority in the Older Upaniṣads contains the table of contents, list of abbreviations and acknowledgments. The Indian scholar and philosopher S. Radhakrishnan refers to the Upaniṣads as "the foundations on which most of the later philosophies and religions of India rest". The Upaniṣads are often studied as a group of homogeneous texts, separate from the older Vedic tradition. Viewing the Upaniṣads through the dual lenses of Vedic affiliation and textual chronology will add significantly to our understanding of Hindu texts.

Keywords: Hindu texts; older upaniṣads
