  • Indian Thought Between Tradition and the Culture of Technology

Indian Thought Between Tradition and the Culture of Technology

Author: David L. Johnson

The book is a brilliant socio-cultural study of the contemporary Indian society in the context of the invasion of the "culture of technology". The recent spate of technological advancements involves much more than the mere use of lifeless mechines. It is an inculcation of a constellation of values and ideas -- a new culture. In a tradition-bound society like India the "culture of technology" is looked at with panic and suspicion. The phenomenon of dehumanisation and the erosion of human values associated with this culture seems to confuse the Indian mind. Yet, India has not been able to withhold the march of this culture.

 

Dr. Johnson makes a penetrating analysis of the Indian predicament with reference to the reactions of Gandhi, Sri Aurobindo and Jayaprakash Narayan; and offers a futuristic assessment of the problem. He argues that the solution lies not in dismissing the "culture of technology" but in incorporating it within the fabric of tradition, so that India can keep pace with the time. He tackles the problem by delving deep into the intracies of the matter of tradition and technology; and spells out the changes required in our traditional way of looking at things.

The book is very contemporary in its approach and reflects a rare kind of optimism about India's potentialities in facing the problem.
