LIFEWORLDS PHILOSOPHY AND INDIA TODAY
LIFEWORLDS PHILOSOPHY AND INDIA TODAY
Description
About the Book:

The author argues that the analysis of lifeworlds can enable the philosopher to turn a diagnostic eye on matters of concrete concern such as the critique of culture, problems of identity in fast-changing environments, the extent of responsibility, and the criteria of responsibility, and the criteria of prioritization in issues of public policy. Multiculturalism provides material for analysis, and this is followed by discussion of explicit and implicit violence, for the cultures of violence are plural. This leads to the consideration of religion in contemporary society and why it often seems to lend itself to exploitation.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
