The Concept of Parinama in Indian Philosophy: A Critical Study with Reference to Samkhya-Yoga
The Concept of Parinama in Indian Philosophy: A Critical Study with Reference to Samkhya-Yoga
Description
From the Jacket:

The present book is an attempt to give an exhaustive and critical exposition of the "concent of parinama in Samkhya-Yoga system".

The book begins with an Introduction, which provides a synoptic picture of the philosophical characterization of Samkhya-Yoga system. It is followed by five chapters. The first chapter "Metaphysics" is an account of the dualism of purusa and prakrti. The Yoga view of God is also discussed.

The second chapter "Satkaryavada" explains the theory of satkarya and the arguments of Isvara Krsna in defence of it. This chapter is a study in comparison of the two contesting theories of causation, namely, satkaryavada and asatkaryavada. The third chapter "Parinamavada" deals with the Samkhya Yoga account of parinama and the different kinds of parinama. It shows that the theory of evolution is a necessary offshoot of its doctrine of pre-existent effects (satkaryavada).

The fourth chapter "Parinamavada and Vivartavada" presents a comparative picture of parinamavada in the light of the Sankara School of Advaita Vedanta. A thorough analysis is undertaken to show how satkaryavada is not compatible with parinamavada and also how it logically culminates in vivartavada.

The fifth chapter "Critical Evaluation" presents the main results of the study. The method of approach adopted in the book is mostly analytical and critical.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
