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.

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 !
Steven, USA
