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

Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
