Daya Krishna identified philosophy with critical analysis and the striving for exact knowledge, whereas Ramchandra Gandhi placed himself in the tradition of the great Indian seers, the teachings of the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita. The iconoclastic or deconstructive implications of Krishna's approach become palpably evident and have led to no small amount of controversy. One prominent theme concerns the role of spiritual liberation (moksha) in traditional Indian thought. Relying on a number of texts, Krishna has no difficulty showing that such liberation “is not the exclusive concern of Indian philosophy; nor is it its predominant concern either.”
