Guru Nanak in Western Scholarship
Guru Nanak in Western Scholarship
Description
About the Book:

This essay is based on three lectures given at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study on the treatment of Guru Nanak in the works of Western writers. The broad context for this essay is obviously the emergence of modern historical writing, particularly in relation to 'orientalism' and Indian studies. This context is not explicitly postulated in the essay, but it obtrudes here and there as the analysis develops. The basic point that appears to emerge from this analysis is the assumption of a close connection between cognition and praxis in the writings of Western scholars on the Sikhs. This was the common ground for the administrator, the missionary and the 'orientalist'. Academic or scientific study of Sikh history and Sikh tradition has arisen not as an alternative to but as a culmination of the earlier motivating interests.

It may be added that this common ground is by now shared by the Indian and the Western scholar alike. Differences of interpretation are still there, but they arise not so much from differences I national perspective as from differences of class, conceptualization, talent and training. His validity of 'new knowledge' is at stake because of its social implications, raising the all important issue of its intended and unintended consequences for different people and classes.

I am thankful to the Fellows who responded to the lectures with valuable comments and suggestions. Mr. S.K. Goel and Mr. T. K. Majumdar have been extremely helpful in preparing and finalizing the typescript, and Mr. N. K. Maini has seen it through the press. I am thankful to them

Testimonials

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
