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

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
