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.

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!

Carl, UK.
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.
