CIT: CONSCIOUSNESS
Description
About the Author:

Binaa Gupta is Professor of Philosophy and Director of South Asian Studies Program at the University of Missouri, Columbia, USA. Her many books include The Disinterested Witness: A Fragment of Advaita Vedanta Phenomenology (1998) and Ethical Question: East and West (2002)

About the Book:

Theories of consciousness form a cornerstone of the Indian philosophical tradition. Cit, the first volume in the Foundations of Philosophy in India series, offers a wide-ranging and penetrating survey of the myriad conceptions of consciousness in classical Indian thought.

Based on careful philological and phenomenological analysis of classical philosophical Sanskrit sources, Bina Gupta presents interpretations of the theories of consciousness also forms the core of much of the fields such as neuroscience. In view of the recent surge of interest in the subject, this book examines current challenges to the idea of consciousness in Western philosophy, and makes a unique attempt to compare Indian theories with the Western accounts of Kant, Hegal, Husserl, Derrida, and even quantum physics.

This thought-provoking volume will acquaint readers with some of the oldest philosophical traditions in the world, while offering them a reference point with which to comprehend more fully contemporary developments in theories of consciousness. It will attract students and scholars of both Indian and Western philosophy as well as the informed general reader.

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!
Noemi
I would like to thank Exotic India for the very superior packaging and shipment of my order. Much appreciated! The order arrived very quickly. Many thanks!! I will always check Exotic India first for books in the future.

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.
