Critical readings of the Bhagawad Gita
#1
Let's list some critical readings of the Gita that we've come across. Here are a few that I've read:

The Truth About The Bhagavad Gita, by Prabhakar Kamath - Hypothesizes that the Gita is not a work with a coherent theme, but is the result of editing by subscribers of three different schools of thought:

  1. The Brahmanic Gita promoting the doctrines of the Gunas and Karma.
  2. The Upanishadic Gita promoting the doctrines of Knowledge of Atman and Buddhiyoga.
  3. The Bhagavatha Gita promoting the doctrines of Lord Krishna as the avatar of the Supreme Lord and Bhaktiyoga.
More Truths About the Bhagavad Gita, by V.N.K Kumar - Assumes that Mahabharat is real history and examines the consequences of that assumption.

The Bhagavad Gita Revisited - Part 1 and Part 2, by Namit Arora - Many Hindus hold Gita as a moral authority. These two articles examine how good are the moral lessons one can draw from the Gita.
