Man and Nature (The Discourses)
Man and Nature (The Discourses)
Description
Foreword

This book is a collection of eleven Anniversary Discourses of Sir William Jones, who founded the Asiatic Society in 1784. The Discourses present a brilliant comparative view of the cultures and civilisations of the Indian sub-continent, the Asian continent, and Europe in which similarities and diversities have been discussed by the great scholar. It is abundantly clear that the spirit of Enlightenment is writ large on these discourses, which have a great historical importance. Sir William Jones was associated with the administration of the East India Company. But he was basically a scholar, a researcher, and he carefully side-stepped the methodology of the British imperialist historians, and evinced an enduring appreciation of the contributions of Asiatic civilisations to the totality of humanities and sciences.

I believe that this collection of the Discourses of Sir William Jones would be deeply appreciated by scholars and readers in general. We have not changed the original spellings, and the text is printed without any change or modification.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
