Concept of Man in Philosophy
Concept of Man in Philosophy
Description
About the Book:

Indian Institute Of Advanced Study, Shimla was perhaps the first research organization in India to have staged some years ago a seminar on MAN. The seminar was a many-pronged intellectual exercise directed toward the understanding of human reality. Although the participants were mainly philosophers, drawn from Indian universities, the papers and discussions at the seminar covered diverse aspects of human life-anthropological, psychological, ethical, ontological, religious, etc. The aim of the sessions was to delineate various dimensions of the human phenomenon, to uncover the meaning of human existence, to arrive at the foundation of man-and-the-world and man-to-man encounters. Speakers put across Indian and Western, scientific and metaphysical, analystic and holistic, inward-directed and outward-directed points of view.

The present volume contains most of the constibutions read and discussed at the seminar. They are by D.P. Chattopadhyaya, Ramchandra Gandhi, Ramakant Sinari, N.S.S. Raman, Suresh Chandra, R.K. Gupta, Y.N. Chopra, S.S. Barlingay, A.K. Sinha, S.N. Mahajan, Sujata Miri, Sisir Kumar Ghose, Amar Kumar Singh, Pratap Chandra, L.P. Singh and V.N. Tiwari.

Each article in this volume reflects an unduplicable paradigm, a unique way of looking at MAN. The reading of all the articles would leave one with an inevitable impression that the meaning of being human can be understood from a number of vantage points, that there are seemingly diverse though fundamentally complementary perceptions concerning humanness, that what a particular writer sees as the dominant feature of human life arises probably from his/her own experience of being in the world.

About the Author:

Before joining Goa University, he was Professor and Chairman of the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.

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
