Asian Philosophy 21 (1):23-34 (2011)
This paper calls attention to m?tsyany?ya, or state of nature theories, in classical Indian thought, and their significance. The focus is on those discussions of m?tsyany?ya found in the law books, political treatises and the Mah?bh?rata epic. The significance and relevance of m?tsyany?ya theories are shown through a comparison with early modern state of nature theories and an elaboration on the possible place of rights and dharma in m?tsyany?ya and the consequences of this for classical Indian political theory
