Buddhist Theory of Meaning and Literary Analysis
Buddhist Theory of Meaning and Literary Analysis
Description

From the Jacket

For over two millennia, language has been one of the prime concerns in nearly all philosophical systems of India: Grammar, Mimamsa, Nyaya, Vaisesika, Jaina and Bauddha which, in turn, not only have shaped the Indian perception of vak, but also constitute the essential back ground to study the major concerns of language that have been taken up in the subsequent phases of philosophical linguistic developments. Rajnish Mishra's book offer a fresh, indepth exposition of the Buddhist theory of meaning against this stupendous backdrop of Indian linguistic thought and also tries to show how this time honoured theory is positioned vis-à-vis the current issues and a assumptions in language.

Surveying the evolution of apoha across the ages-specially in its four kindred perspective, viz, the Abhidharmika, the Sautrantika schools of Buddhist philosophy, the author sets out, on its Basis, a cognitive-epistemological model for literary analysis and illustrates as well as the applicational aspects of this model with meticulous analysis of Wordsworth's poetic masterpiece, Tintern Abbey.

Based, as it is, on Wide-ranging primary sources, including the Buddhist philosophical-epistemological texts in Sanskrit, the book sheds altogether new light on the Buddhist theory of meaning and, simultaneously, argues against the fallacies that have cropped up around its latter-day interpretations.

A work of specific contemporary relevance to the ongoing post-structuralist debates, the book also carries a comprehensive, highly valuable cross-referential glossary of conceptual Sanskrit terms.

About the Author

He has come to have specialized interest in the theories of meaning and interpretation: both Indian and Western in his broader academic pursuits to locate the interface domain of linguistics, literature and philosophy. A member of the sastra Group at the Centre of Linguistics and English, Jwaharlal Nehru University which is producing English translation of select classical Sanskrit texts, he has presented research papers in various international seminars and contributed articles on Indian grammatical traditions, theories of meaning and philosophy of language for several volumes. He has recently been awarded the Japanese Okita Memorial fellowship by the ICCR for two years for his significant research that has bearing on Indo-Japanese cultural contacts and relations.

Currently he is involved in research on Kashmir saiva philosophy and literary theory at the centre of Linguistics and English, School of Language, Literature and Culture Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
