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 received the 2 sarees and the DVDs. You truly are a treasure house for the music and other related things. You have gotten me an array of CDs,books,DVDs and not least of all beautiful sarees. All always packed with care, delivered in a timely, no hassle fashion. Your business is very trustworthy and I am so glad to have when I need to look for something.
Prashanti, USA
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
Walter

Thanks to all the staff at Exotic Art for helping me acquire these wonderful books from the holy land of Bharata Varsha. Happy new year to you all and all glories to Sri Krsna, peace...
J. Idehen, UK
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.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
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
