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

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
