Essays on Indian Philosophy
Essays on Indian Philosophy
Description
From the Jacket :

This collection of essays by Professor J.N. Mohanty 'chart[s]...a sort of intellectual autobiography' and traces his reflections on Indian philosophy and range of other issues, over a span of forty years. Part I deals with problems in metaphysics, epistemology, and language, along with thoughtful treatments of notions such as experience, self, consciousness, doubt, tradition, and modernity. Essays in Part II, written during the turbulent post-Independence years, survey issues in social ethics, reform activities, and religion, variously in the works of Aurobindo, Gandhi, Vinobha, and Rammohun Roy. Part III discusses the encounter between phenomenology and philosophy, between Indian and Western philosophy, through an incisive analysis of some major concerns of philosophy, anywhere. The collection ends with some thoughts on the future of Indian philosophy.

Those keen on keeping abreast with the 'other' interests and equally analytical reflections of one of the finest minds in contemporary phenomenology and philosophical currents, will find in these essays an invigorating and challenging thrust. The editor's substantial introduction followed by the author's own prologue set the scene for a stimulating read.

About the Author :

J.N. Mohanty is Professor of Philosophy, Temple University, Philadelphia and Woodruff Professor of Philosophy and Asian Studies, Emory University, Georgia.

Purushottama Bilimoria is Professor of Philosophy, Deakin University and Senior Research Fellow, Melbourne University, Australia.

Excerpts From Reviews:

'The essays in this collection are delightful reading...replete with argumentative skill.' - The Book Review

'Jitendra Mohanty triumphs because of his generosity of understanding and closeness to the voice of earth-bound man. This is the true Indian spirit of philosophy: an integral view of the Near and the Far, Being and Becoming, Today and Tomorrow.' - The Hindu

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

Thanks to all the staff at Exotic Art for helping me acquire these wonderful books from the holy land of Bharata Varsha. Happy new year to you all and all glories to Sri Krsna, peace...
J. Idehen, UK
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
