LIFEWORLDS PHILOSOPHY AND INDIA TODAY
LIFEWORLDS PHILOSOPHY AND INDIA TODAY
Description
About the Book:

The author argues that the analysis of lifeworlds can enable the philosopher to turn a diagnostic eye on matters of concrete concern such as the critique of culture, problems of identity in fast-changing environments, the extent of responsibility, and the criteria of responsibility, and the criteria of prioritization in issues of public policy. Multiculturalism provides material for analysis, and this is followed by discussion of explicit and implicit violence, for the cultures of violence are plural. This leads to the consideration of religion in contemporary society and why it often seems to lend itself to exploitation.

About the Author:

Her other assignments include a Professorship in Comparative Religion at Visva-Bharati, Santiniketan, and Visiting Professorships at Drew and Calgary Universities.

You have a great selection of books, and it's easy and quickly to purchase from you. Thanks.
Ketil, Norway
Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
