Class Twenty-seven An Atheist Perspective on the Indian Atheism Tuesday, April 22, 2014 Books Recommended For each class May be found On AtheistScholar.org India is known for its varied spiritual traditions, but there is a very strong naturalist tradition in that country, as well. In this lecture I shall be discussing naturalism versus theism, the concepts of karma, reincarnation and moksha, and some of the ancient atheistic thinkers and schools in India. My final and most important focus will be on the ancient school of thinkers, known as Carvaka and Lokayata, at their height in the 5th and 6th Centuries BCE, who exemplified the naturalist tradition of India.
