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.

Testimonials
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
