Description
Back of the Book

Consciousness is a particularly unified phenomenon which has of late drawn the attention of scholars of different disciplines all over world. But the opinions of these scholars are so varied that it is very difficult to have any kind of consensus- though everyone, perhaps, feels the urgency of exploring this mystery. The Institute presented an international seminar on the subject ‘Philosophy and Science: An Exploratory Approach to Consciousness’ on 8 and 9 February 2002.

The seminar was inaugurated y Swami Ranganathananda, President of the Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission, and Professor Karl H. Pribram, Professor Emeritus, Standford University, gave the keynote address of the inaugural session. This was followed by four academic sessions on two days and the valedictory session. The main feature of the valedictory session was a panel discussion among five scholars with Professor J.N. Mohanty of Temple University, Philadelphia, as the co-ordinator. In all, twenty –six scholars from different parts of India as also from outside the country participated. In the academic sessions, each scholar presented a 20-minute paper, followed by a discussion for another 25 minutes. This volume contains the papers presented by the participants in the seminar, along with along with salient portions of the question- and- answer sessions.

 

Publisher's Note

Consciousness is a particularly unified phenomenon which has of late drawn the attention of scholars of different disciplines all over world. However, the opinions of these scholars are so varied that it is very difficult to have any kind of consensus-though everyone feels the urgency of exploring this mystery. On 8 and 9 February 2002, the Institute presented an international seminar on the subject ‘Philosophy and Science: An Exploratory Approach to Consciousness’, in which twenty-six scholars from different parts of India as also from outside the country participated. Every scholar presented a 20-minute paper, and each paper was followed by a discussion for another 25 minutes. Thus it was possible to have some meaningful exchanges of views.

The inaugural meeting received the benediction of Swami Ranganthanandaji Maharaj, President of the Rammakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission. The keynote address was presented by Prof. Karl H. Probram, Professor Emeritus, Standford University. Swami Smaranananda, General Secretary, Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission, also gave a short address. The meeting was chaired by M.V.S. Valiathan, President, Indian National Science Academy.

An interesting feature of the valedictory session was the brief summing up of the proceedings by Prof. Samir Bhattacharya, Director, Indian Institute of Chemical Biology. This was followed by a panel discussion among five scholars with Prof. J.N.Mohanty of Temple University, Philadelphia, as the co-ordianator. This discussion helped to clarify the subject further for people.

We are grateful to the Ministry of Culture, Government of India, for its active support and financial assistance to the Institute for the seminar. The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, New Delhi, also lent financial help to the Institute to partially meet the expenses, and for this we express our thanks.

This volume contains the papers presented bu the participants in the seminar, along with salient portons of the interesting question-and 0answer sessions that followed. We are thankful to Prof. Pradyot Kumar Mukhopadhyay, Dr Samir Bhattacharya, prof. Sisir Roy, Dr Debabrata Sen Sarma, Dr Dipti Pal, and particularly to Dr Visvanath Chatterjee, for editing the proceedings.

We hope this brief this brief study on consciousness will evoke further interest among scholars of different disciplines for more investigations on the subject.

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
Sanjay, USA
The statue was delivered today. It is exceedingly beautiful. My thanks to the creator of the statue for such a lovely idol and to yourselves for the great service.
Shashi
I'm so proud of your Company, it's so rare to have a good service after sales.... I will recommend you to all my friends.
Colette, Canada
I am a repeat customer of your store. I have bought several items from you and like the quality and service. Please keep up the good work of providing Puranas and Vedas.
Raghavan, USA
This is a beautiful website - and very customer friendly - easy to find your way around.
Sonia, UK.
Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
