History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization: The Enworlded Subjectivity: Its Three Worlds and Beyond (Volume XI, Part 4)

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. The jiva who lives in the world is the enworlded subjectivity. The concept of trhe "enworlded subjectivity" interrelates consciousness, science, society, value, and Yoga. Every individual who is placed in this world becomes an enworlded subjectivity encountering and experiencing three worlds as explained by the Upanisads in the Indian tradition and by Popper and Eccles in the West. The four sections in this volume bring out the nature, status, and function of the individual in relation to society on the one hand, and its achievements, values, and aspirations on the other. The message of this volume is that human beings, though rooted in the transactional world, endeavour to achieve transcendence of their finitude from time to time, from stage to stage. The Upanisad not only speaks about the spiritual journey from the outer world to the inward Self, but also formulates the technique for realizing the primal Spirit through the vision of oneness. The end of the journey takes us to the point from which the journey was started. This volume will be of interest not only for students and scholars of philosophy, but also for social philosophers, interested in the Indian culture and civilization.
