HUMAN EXISTENCE, TRANSCENDENCE AND SPIRITUALITY
HUMAN EXISTENCE, TRANSCENDENCE AND SPIRITUALITY
Description
About the Book :

History of philosophical thinking evinces two different approaches while one excludes the other concentrates on man. The exploration of the meaning of man needs to take into account the made of emergence of man.

The author in this work has made an attempt at elucidating the tow structures of human existence, subjectivity and relatedness, in the light of basic structure, i.e., finitude. In this elucidation, the author has tried to focus on (1) the uniqueness of man and (2) the directedness e.g. the transcendence as expressed in the dialectical movement to the infinite or God. Transcendence in the opinion of author does not mean the transcendent, and the former which is co-related to discontent contributes to the human fulfillment.

The varied Naturalistic and reductionistic accounts of man which are characterized by the common denial of the surplus in man and consequentially human autonomy and dignity have been examined and found untenable.

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

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
