Beyond Orientalism (The Work of Wilhelm Halbfass and its Impact on Indian and Cross-Cultural Studies
Beyond Orientalism (The Work of Wilhelm Halbfass and its Impact on Indian and Cross-Cultural Studies
Description
Back of the Book

Wilhelm Halbfass (1940-2000) was one of the leading Indologists of his generation and perhaps the most insightful scholar of Indian philosophy in the last century. Born in Germany, he spent most of his professional life in North America where he taught Indian philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. In his monographs he thoroughly reshaped our understanding of Mimamsa, Advaita Vedanta and Vaisesika, and of the cross cutting issue of karma and rebirth in Indian philosophy and religion. Undoubtedly, his greatest and most widely known contribution to South Asian and Cross Cultural Studies remains the monumental book India and Europe, which gives a vivid and fascinating historical account of the encounter, dialogue and controversial interaction between the Indian and Western intellectual traditions. His premature death has deprived South Asian Studies and related fields of a major voice.

About the Book

The ground plan for the present volume is unique in Indological studies. Twenty-three scholars from seven countries were invited to respond to issues elaborated in one or more of Wilhelm Halbfass own critical essay on Edward Said's Orientalism and related topics. The following individual contributions are grouped under four headings: Cross-Cultural Encounter and Dialogue, Issues of Comparative Philosophy, Topics in Classical Indian Philosophy, and Indian Religion, Past and Present. In four illuminating essays, Halbfass himself responds to each of these contributions, thus entering into direct dialogue with his respondents.

About the Author

Eli Franco is Professor of Indology at the Institute for Indology and Central Asian Studies, University of Leipzig, German.

Karin Preisendanz is Professor of Indology at the Institute for South Asian, Tibetan and Buddhist studies, University of Vienna, Austria.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.

I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
