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.
