    Thinker, Thought and Knowledge in East–West Perspective by: V.N. Misra 891.00

    Thinker, Thought and Knowledge critically and analytically reasons that some of the philosophical expositions like “thought has created the thinker” and “higher-order thoughts are themselves conscious” hinder us from explaining our sense of unity of consciousness. This book presents and elucidates some observations — thought cannot create thinker; along with thinker and thought, thinking too is quintessential for individual experience to take place; thinker, thinking and thought are fundamentally one in self-consciousness; thought becomes the object of self-consciousness; and the modern science attempts to undermine the principle of causation — from the East—West perspective, and registers its disproval with the philosophical views of scholars like J. Krishnamurti and a few other modern philosophers. Coming to the knowledge aspect, the volume delineates the relative existence and knowledge dealing with the absolute reality, and discusses it on the basis of Advaita Vedanta and the Yogacara Vijiianavada of the Buddhist philosophy along with Immanuel Kant’s theory of knowledge. The researcher’s approach employed in this volume should help the students of philosophy and other discerning readers take an analytical and critical positioning towards many a philosophical problem that they come across.

    The book presents the notion of unity in diversity in the context of globalization and multiculturalism. The concepts of unity and diversity have been contested in classical and modern theories. These theories give rise to the concept of diversity but jointly somehow they emerge as unity in diversity.

    Unity in Diversity by: Dr Raghwendra Pratap Singh 765.00

    The book presents the notion of unity in diversity in the context of globalization and multiculturalism. Philosophically speaking, the concepts of unity and diversity have been contested in classical and modern theories; for instance, Plato’s idea of harmony and goodness, Aristotle’s phronesis or practical wisdom (teleology), Kant’s categorical imperative (deontology), and Mill’s utilitarianism (consequentialism) on the one hand and purusarthas divided into abhyudaya and nihsreyas, etc. on the other. These theories give rise to the concept of diversity but jointly somehow they emerge as unity in diversity.
    In the era of globalization and multiculturalism, teleology, deontology, consequentialism and so on have been described, critiqued and even appreciated and appropriated from pluralistic perspective. With globalization and multiculturalism, human life is affected not only insofar as market is concerned, but also the ethnical, cultural and linguistic identities are equally affected. However, unlike globalization, multiculturalism endorses the role of the State in protecting and safeguarding the rights of diverse cultural groups, values and practices, marriage and settlements, property and inheritance, etc. so that members of each cultural community should become the valid participants in the civil and democratic life in the globalized world.
    The perspectives of, and the conflict between individual needs and rights, and group needs and rights, have been conceptualized under liberalism and communitarianism. It is proposed to be achieved by developing cultural transformations in the era of globalization, thus creating reasonable exclusion on broader values. The effort is to allow these values to inform and reinforce each other for the possible foundations of multiculturalism, specially cosmopolitanism in the globalized world.

    Vedānta texts have been well known for their richness in fundamental scientific and technological principles with strong potential for research and development today. In fact, much of ancient India’s remarkable achievements in science and technology can be credited to Vedantic texts.

    Vedanta: The Science of Consciousness by: Omana S 1,080.00

    Sree Narayana Guru (1856–1928), an enlightened seer, represents Vedanta as a Science of Consciousness or pure Epistemology. This book deals with Guru’s epistemology and shows how it can eliminate many of the problems in philosophy and life.
    The Guru conceives Consciousness or Arivu as the one all underlying Reality that assumes the form of everything in the world, both mind and matter.
    Epistemologists are usually either idealists or realists, but the Guru is neither. To him there is no need to place one above the other since they are two manifest forms of one Consciousness.
    Many eminent persons have tried to solve the problem of consciousness, but could not succeed because they were not ready to consider man as a pure being and the essence of the world as Consciousness.
    To the Guru, in every event of knowing there is the coming together of subject, object and also the function of knowing. These three are Consciousness in essence. What we really need is awareness of it. All kinds of divisiveness, conflicts and crises can be solved through an awakening of the inner consciousness of man which is non-different from the one all underlying Reality titled Brahman, Atman or Consciousness.

    Vedānta is the very heart of Indian philosophy. The various schools of Vedānta have been explored under diverse categories including ontological and epistemological, but they are a storehouse of so much more. “Hermeneutics” in simple words can be the theory of interpretation and this book has studied the critique of the Advaita hermeneutics by Rāmānujācārya based on Vedic statements like tat tvam asi, tadaikāta bahu syāma, neha nānāsti kiñcana and many others in his book Vedārthasaṁgraha which mirrors a complete vision of the Upaniṣads. Rāmānujācārya has shown how the Śruti statements can be seen in a coherent manner resolving the conflicts of bheda and abheda. The nature of a word and its various śaktis, followed by how successful are words in describing the concepts of sat, cit and ānanda, are also discussed here.
    This book is an initial effort in the hermeneutic studies of Indian texts, which have been kept limited to the scope of philosophy, theology or religion alone. Many more linguistic treasures can be found here.

    Yogacara Vasubandhu’s Phenomenological Idealism by: Shruti Kapur 1,125.00

    This book is a comparative study of the phenomenology of Yogacara Vasubandhu and that of the German philosopher Edmund Husserl having the focus on the understanding of the deeply inner nature of consciousness or mind. It articulates that the Yogacara philosophy is much richer and comprehensive than the Western phenomenology, particularly the Husserlian phenomenology.
    Later Vasubandhu’s philosophical orientation was idealist in Indian sense or a phenomenologist in Husserlian sense. His Mahayana Yogacara idealism is based on Asanga’s seminal text Sandhinirmocanasutra and his own Vijnaptimatratasiddhi (Vimsatika and Trimsika together) along with his exploration of the intrinsic theory of consciousness or mind. For one to have a clear-cut understanding of Vasubandhu, the book follows the Husserlian phenomenological approach as a philosophical methodology and also used select terminology wherever required.
    This book is expected to be highly useful for students, researchers and teachers in the area of Indian/Buddhist philosophy.

    दार्शनिक समीक्षा का सत्याग्रह (Darshanika Samiksha Ka Satyagraha) by: Ambika Datta Sharma 675.00

    दार्शनिक समीक्षा का सत्याग्रह नामधेय यह कृति मेरे द्वारा दिए गए व्याख्यानों का एक परिमार्जित संग्रह है। यह सभी व्याख्यान भारत के प्रतिष्ठित शिक्षा संस्थानों में 2017-18 के दौरान भारतीय दार्शनिक अनुसन्धान परिषद् के अतिथि आचार्य (विजटिंग प्रोफेसर) के रूप में दिए गए थे। ऐसे संग्रह-ग्रन्थ में विचार केन्द्रित अन्विति नहीं होती, और यदि होती भी है तो उसे विचारक-केन्द्रित अन्विति के रूप में ही परखा जा सकता है। विचारों में विचारक-केन्द्रित अन्विति अनुप्रास युक्त पदों से निर्मित एक वाक्य की तरह होती है जिसके अलग-अलग पद आनुप्रासिक सौन्दर्य के साथ अर्थ का अभिधान करते हैं। इसी प्रकार का आनुप्रासिक सौन्दर्य एक व्यक्ति के बहुविध वैचारिक उपक्रमों की सार्थकता होती है। दार्शनिक समीक्षा के रूप में समाकलित इन सभी व्याख्यानों की अन्विति उनके सत्याग्रही होने में है। विचार का सत्य विचारों के मूलगामी अर्थ को उद्घाटित करना है। समीक्षा जब इस उद्देश्य के साथ प्रवर्तित होती है तभी “सत्याग्रह” उसका विशेषण बनता है।
