PHILOSOPHY OF HISTORY: Some Reflections on North-East India
PHILOSOPHY OF HISTORY: Some Reflections on North-East India
Description
About the Book:

The book broadly reviews the formulations of the great philosophers of history of the world vis-a-vis the historiography of North East India on a selective basis and states own positioning of the better known historians of the region. In the introduction the author states his own arguments about the merit of historical explanations. In the chapter by well known scholars is discussed and rejected and a ninth, called 'relative objectivity', which, according to the author, "is sustained and preserved by the continuity of historical inquiry without ignoring the significance of historical facts" is added. The author further states that "the task of historiographer is to maintain and preserve the continuity of historical inquiry so as to have a holistic account of such an inquiry". He is "convinced that history is capable of achieving this purpose by adopting the ninth criterion." This position of the author may generate a debate in philosophy of history and several eye-brows are likely to be raised on his positioning of the historians of North East India.

Nevertheless, it is a well known fact that research flourishes through debates and controversies and the scholars contribute more positively by agreeing to disagree. It is hoped that this call is responded to by the scholars in the spirit it has been forwarded.

The book should be of significant importance to historians in particular besides all who have any interest in the historiography of North East India.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
