Bibliography

A minute analysis of the formative stages of the concept of puruṣa is found in Erhardt Hanefeld's Philosophische Haupttexte der älteren Upaniṣaden (Wiesbaden, 1976). For the beginnings of the development of the concept, see E. H. Johnston's Early Sāṃkhya: An Essay on Its Historical Development according to the Texts (1937; reprint, Delhi, 1974). A detailed study of the Sāṃkhya school is provided in Sāṃkhya: A Dualist Tradition in Indian Philosophy by Gerald James Larson and Ram Shankar Bhattacharya, the third volume of the Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies, edited by Karl H. Potter (Princeton and Delhi, 1987). See also Patrick Olivelle, Upaniṣads. (World's Classics. Oxford, 1996).
