Abstract: We know that Indian Philosophy, in general, prescribes for four puruṣārthas, viz., dharma, artha, kāmaandmokṣa. But the Cārvāka School accepts only two puruṣārthas, viz., artha and kāma, and rejects dharma and mokṣa altogether. Between the two puruṣārthas, kāma, the Cārvāka School says, is the supreme end and artha is the means to fulfil this end.
