Mathematics, Astronomy and Biology in Indian Tradition (Some Conceptual Preliminaries)
Mathematics, Astronomy and Biology in Indian Tradition (Some Conceptual Preliminaries)
Description
About the Book:

This monograph, Mathematics Astronomy and Biology in Indian Tradition, is a collection of five research papers by eminent scholars in the fields of philosophy, science, history and culture. Along with its companion publications, it provides glimpses of the comprehensive and interdisciplinary research work that has been undertaken by the Project of History of Indian Science, Philosophy and Culture (PHISPC). It is a critical exercise in rediscovering, recapturing and reinterpreting the heritage of India from a contemporary point of view. Like any other truly historical Project it has an implicit futural orientation.

The main idea underlying this Project, launched by Indian Council of Philosophical Research, and aided by Government of India and some other agencies, is to study the interconnection between philosophy, science and technology as elements of the culture of India. We have our political history, history of philosophy and history of science. Also, some attempts have been made to reconstruct our cultural history. It must be recognized here that the disciplines which are being distinctly named now as science, philosophy, etc., did not mean the same thing over the centuries in the past. Further, it should be admitted that the historical approach of the Project is not chronological or linear. Consciously, it has been designed as conceptual. The hallmark of the Project is its interdisciplinarity.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
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 !
