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.

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.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
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.
Oreste, USA
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
