Mind-Body Dualism
Mind-Body Dualism
Description
From the Jacket:

How dowe (basically) conceptualize a human being or, say, any 'person'? Is he just his 'body'? Or a 'mind' too - besides his 'body'? What, then, is 'mind', or how is it related to 'body'? And since 'body' is destructible, does man have 'disembodied existence' as well? Addressing these age-old questions of fundamental importance, the book focuses on mind-body dualism. Which, despite its exposure to scathing criticisms, and even outright repudiations, has survived as a powerful dualistic tradition.

Alpana Chakraborty's study is not a critique of mind-body dualism; but a coherent, quintessential review of the philosophical thinking that has, since Descartes' time, been invested in the shaping of this dualistic tradition, its theoretical parameters and its key issues. Also setting out Western concepts of 'person', 'disembodied existence/survival', and 'bodily resurrection', the author considers the Cartesian view of mind-body dualism, and how it compares with the dualism of traditional Indian Samkhya philosophy.

In her effort to spell out issues central to mind-body interaction, Dr. Chakraborty develops a vast historical framework from the acknowledged treatises/theories of Cottinghum, Don Locke, Gillbert Ryle, C.D. Broad, C.J. Ducasse, Nichlos Bohr, P.F. Srawson and other Western philosophers - including the very recent theories of 'Complementarity' and 'Meta-Linguistic Dualism'.

Invaluable to the scholars of philosophy, metaphysics and psychology.

About the Author:

Alpana Chakraborty holds M. Phil and Ph.D. of the North-Eastern Hill University (NEHU), Shillong. And is currently Lecturer in Philosophy at the NEHU-affiliated St. Anthony College.

A scholar with varied areas of interest and also member of several academic bodies, Dr. Chakraborty writes in both Bengali and English on different themes that range from mind-body dualism to existentialism.

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.

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
