History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization: Theistic Vedanta (Volume II, Part III)

 
D.P. Chattopadhyaya (Editor) R. Balasubramanian (Editor)
Synopsis The volumes of the Project on the History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization aim at discovering the main aspects of India’s heritage and present them in an interrelated way. These volumes, in spite of their unitary look, recognize the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The Project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers and writers who are methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. In fact contributions are made by different scholars with different ideological persuasions and methodological approaches. The Project is marked by what may be called ‘methodological pluralism”. In spite of its primary historical character, this Project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by many scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is for the first time that an endeavour of such a unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken so study critically a major world civilization like India. The important message of all Vedantic systems I that the understanding of the nature of Brahman as the source and support of all beings must culminate not only in a new vision, but also in a new way of life. This volume on Theistic Vedanta, which is sequel to the earlier volume on Advaiata Vedanta, contains three sections: the first one explains the heritage of Saivism and Vaisnavism; the second one highlights the God-man-world relation through a variety of doctrines and arguments as formulated by the illustrious preceptors of Vaisnava and Saiva traditions; and the third one gives an account of the teachings and practices of the mystic-saints who authenticated the heritage through varieties of spiritual experience. This volume will be of interest for all those who are concerned with the Vedic-Agamic heritage which has gone through a long span of time retaining its identity.
