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
