Philosophy of Science Phenomenology and Other Essays
Philosophy of Science Phenomenology and Other Essays
Description
From the Jacket :

Some very fundamental issues of science and philosophy have been dealt with in this book. Knowledge, consciousness, freedom, action, being and becoming are among those issues. Though analytic tools have often been used to explicate the said concepts, the approach of this book does not aim to be analytic in its narrow sense.

In most of the essays of the book Chattopadhyaya has liberally drawn on science and philosophy, Indian and modern traditions, classical and contemporary writers. Phenomenology and consciousness studies have received special attention of the author in this work. The author has not allowed some such received points of view as realism and idealism, transcendentalism and empiricism marked by their attending variety and indefiniteness, to restrict his was of exploration and explication of the basic concepts of philosophy of science and their manysidedness. Because of the wide range of the themes of the book and their transdisciplinary character it will be of interest not only to professional philosophers and philosophers of science but also to social scientists and general readers.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

Muhammad Arshad Nadeem
It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
