I feel like the Western philosophy is inherently depressing and their world-view is mostly nihilistic, I want to juxtapose the Western philosophies with Hindu/Indian philosophy. Are there any good books or texts on this?

I want to understand where the two philosophies stand on major issues of life and death, morality, purpose and relationships.

    First of all there no one Western philosophy. Which theory do you adhere to?

  • @KrsnaDasa wow thank you, this is precisely what I was looking for. Which one will you recommend the most? Jan 5, 2021 at 4:01
  • "A Critical Survey" only does passing comaprisons. Two better ones, although I take exception to some of their interpretations of advaita, are "Nonduality: A Study of Comparative Philosophy" by David Loy and (difficult to find) "Philosophy East/West: A Critical Comparison of Indian, Chinese, Islamic, and European Philosophy" by Ben-Ami Scharfstein, Ilai Alon, Shlomo Biderman, Dan Daor, and Yoel Hoffmann.
