Cultures and Cosmos: The Cosmic Anthropological Principle

 
Baidyanath Saraswati (Author)
Synopsis The present volume, Cultures and Cosmos: The Cosmic Anthropological Principle is an endeavour to explore the numerous dimensions of the fundamental concepts in Cosmic Anthropology such as Nature, Sound, Space, Time, Mind, etc. This remarkable work reflects the importance of Cosmology in human organization which is an important tool for understanding human nature and culture. The book is a pioneering attempt to explore the cosmic principle while integrating it with Anthropology and Sociology. It will help the reader to discern a crucial dimension of human self and organization. It is hoped that this interdisciplinary study will facilitate a deeper comprehension and evoke a stimulating response from students, scholars and general readers alike. With increasing specialization and fragmentation, this is a unique work of reflection and integration.

About the author

Baidyanath Saraswati

Baidyanath Saraswati, Unesco Professor, Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts, New Delhi, was associated with the Anthropological Survey of India, Culcutta, for a decade, and another decade with the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla. During this period he did extensive fieldwork in rural India and conducted a detailed study of the sacred city of Varanasi. As a Professor of Visva-Bharati University, Ranchi University and North-Eastern Hill University, he taught anthropology in a highly unconventional style. For the last twelve years, he is drawing out relevant themes from traditional thoughts and modern sciences to build up an indigenous anthropology from within. His research opens up new possibilities for non-Western anthropologists to imagine a future for themselves. He has authored The Sacred Science of Man, The Sacred Science of Nature, as well as other books and articles.
