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.

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
Sanjay, USA

I am a repeat customer of your store. I have bought several items from you and like the quality and service. Please keep up the good work of providing Puranas and Vedas.
Raghavan, USA

Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
