Book Description
About the Book:

The Institute has launched a programme entitled "Dissemination of Knowledge" under which it publishes Occasional Papers on significant themes of Knowledge relevant to society, nation and humanity.

Neuroscience and Philosophy by Prof. G.C. Pande brings into focus the developments in neuroscience and also its limitations in the ultimate research for consciousness. Neuroscience has made tremendous advances and has been used for several therapeutic treatments and has led to support an empiricist-positivist philosophy. But consciousness is something more than neural cognizance. As such it cannot be the ultimate answer in the search for consciousness. The paper rightly asserts that the idea of man in Indian as well Greek philosophy has been that of a self-conscious being with a dual nature-rationalist and physical. Naturally from this point of view, naturalistic reductionalism is implausible. The author has very ably asserted that normalcy cannot be defined exclusively in physiological terms. His enunciation of the India system of Yoga with a distinctive methodology of experience is really a way for a final understanding of consciousness because the Yoga makes the quest for the human self in ultimate analysis possible. The neuroscience is incomplete without such experiential philosophies as of the Yoga of Indian tradition.
