    Re: Why is Carvaka considered a "dharma tradition?"

    Carvaka is not included among the six schools of Hindu philosophy. It is a heretical school of philosophy(nastika) meaning that it rejects the Vedas as supreme authority.

    Carvaka is basically the philosophy of materialism. It is interesting to note while in India it was never taken seriously, in the West it has become the most popular philosophy and most people in the world today are living by its hedonistic principles.
