About the Book

In this radical book, Roy Bhaskar expands his philosophy of critical realism with an audacious re-synthesis of many aspects of Western and Eastern thought. Arguing that the existence of God provides the fundamental structure of the world, he renders plausible ideas of reincarnation, karma and moksha or liberation.

From East to West signifies a major new development in critical realism. It will stimulate debate in ontology, epistemology, ethics, political philosophy and the philosophy of religion.
