VISHNU ON FREUD'S DESK: A Reader in Psychoanalysis and Hinduism
VISHNU ON FREUD'S DESK: A Reader in Psychoanalysis and Hinduism
Description

About the Book:

Freudian psychoanalysis, commonly critiqued for being rooted in a male-centric, Central European ethos, has surprisingly been as extremely fertile ground for the study of the Indian psyche. This volume brings together a rich variety of classical and contemporary writings on aspects of Hindu culture, and places these within the frames of understanding of psychoanalysis.

The contributors include Girindrasekhar Bose, Sarah Caldwell, G.M. Carstairs, Alfred Collins, Paul B. Coutright, Prakash Desai, Wendy Doniger, Robert P. Goldman, Christiane Hartnack, Sudhir Kakar, Jeffery J. Kripal, Stanley N. Kurtz, J. M. Masson, Ashis Nandy, Gananath Obeyesekere, William B. Parsons, A. K. Ramanujan, B. K. Ramanujam, and Alan Roland.

To lay readers interested in psychoanalysis, and to academics interested in the fields of psychology, sociology, cultural studies and Hindu thought, this is an invaluable collection of essays.

REVIEWS:

'…..probably the best collection of essays written on the encounter between psychoanalysis and Hindu and comprises work by some of the most celebrated anthropologists, psychoanalysts and Indologists today.'

-Biblio

'I read it to oxygenate my mind. It allows refreshing whiffs of enquiry and surmise…'

-Kalpish Ratna, The Sunday Observer

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.

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.
