Abstract:

The Upani?ads have often been treated as a unified corpus of religious and
philosophical texts, separate from the older Vedic tradition. It is well
known that the Upani?ads were initially composed and transmitted within
specific schools of Vedic recitation, or ??kh?s, but the ??kh? affiliation
of each Upani?ad has received very little attention in the scholarly
literature. The author offers a new interpretation of the older Upani?ads
in the light of the Vedic school affiliations of each text. This book
argues that issues of textual authority, and in particular the authority of
the various Vedic schools, are central in the Upani?ads, and that the
Upani?ads can, on one level, be read as texts about text. While analyzing
the theme of textual authority in the Upani?ads, the author also outlines a
theory of textual criticism as applied to orally transmitted texts that
will be of use to textual scholars in other fields as well.
