Integral Philosophy of Sri Aurobindo

Notice: Undefined variable: co_author in /home/dkprintw/public_html/catalog/view/theme/default/template/product/product.tpl on line 45

The book is an in-depth study of the integral philosophy of Sri Aurobindo. It throws light on his fundamental ideas on socio-political issues and concepts relating to Yoga and knowledge. The well researched writings pointedly examine Sri Aurobindo’s views on nationalism, Western imperialism, morality, stateless society, human relations and education among other such subjects. Quoting liberally from Sri Aurobindo the volume delves deep into his understanding of the “divine” and the “human”; the “nation” as characterized by spirituality; and spiritual transformation relying on the brotherhood of all humans as multiple expressions of the same godhead. His philosophy of integral monism and the way Aurobindo makes frequent references to Hindu scriptures: the Vedas, the Upanishads and the Puranas has been highlighted in particular. How Sri Aurobindo stresses throughout on the dangers of imposed uniformity with total disregard for difference has been brought into focus.
Based on an analytical study of Sri Aurobindo’s philosophy and offering fresh approaches, the volume will interest both, the students and scholars of modern Indian philosophy and Indology in general.
