About the Book

 

This book comprises four lectures by the author which she was to deliver at IIAS. These four lectures under the general title of Circumstance and Dharma include Towards a phenomenology of Circumstance; The Concept of Commitment; The Concept of Multiple Allegiance; and The Concept of Dharma. The Lectures reflect personal belief of the author that advanced research needs to focus on matters of direct importance to conditions in India today.

Preface

 

These are the four lectures I had hoped to deliver at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla in response to Professor Peter Ronald deSouza’s gracious invitation to come as Visiting Professor in 2008. I am extremely disappointed that a complete breakdown in health has made this impossible and I deeply regret the loss of an opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones. The lectures, under the general title of Circumstance and Dharma, reflect my personal belief that advanced research needs to focus on matters of direct importance to conditions in India today.

‘Towards a Phenomenology of Circumstance’ from Communication, Identity and Self-Expression, OUP, Delhi 1984.
