History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization: Philosophical Concepts Relevant to Sciences in Indian Tradition (Volume III, Part 4)

 
D.P. Chattopadhyaya (Editor) Pranab K. Sen (Editor)
Synopsis There is a widespread belief in some countries, particularly the West, that India's intellectual tradition has been mainly metaphysical and religious. That this view is substantially mistaken and that India, together with its philosophical and religious traditions, consciously developed a scientific tradition has been shown in this volume. Categories and concepts used in philosophical and scientific disciplines have their refined implications which are articulated only in well defined and in exact ideas. The volume explicates the abstract concepts in relatively simple ways, and brings them close to the world of our experience. A close reading of the papers contributed to the volume makes it clear that the basis themes of Indian systems of philosophy have been open-ended and interactive with their counterparts as available in other civilizations and systems of thought and action. The Introduction to this volume would help the reader to follow the contents and the structure of the work. Students, researchers and the general public are bound to find this volume very interesting and instructive.
