Metaphysic of Experience in Advaita Vedanta

Debabrata Sinha (Author)
Synopsis The present work offers a fresh approach of interpretive understanding of the pivotal conception of Cit and its orientation in an in-depth critique of experience. Drawing thoroughly on the major and relevantly significant texts of Advaita literature, the metaphysical and epistemological strands of Sankara and post-Sankara Vedanta are posed under the focus of Cit problematic and reexamined and reinterpreted accordingly. From 'epistemological' discourse the study proceeds to the heart of the doctrine, broadly by way of a phenomenologically oriented mode of analysis of the structure of experience. It relates to such cardinal concepts and problems as perception, conscious act, illusory experience, grades of reflection, etc. Moving across the cognate areas of Indian and western thought the author brings distinct areas of contemporary philosophy to bear upon a close critical look into the genuine insights of the doctrine. Neither a historical exposition nor a textual study, the work combines freedom of critical understanding with authenticity of textual scholarship. It is meant to be a hermeneutic interpretation which should let the central corpus of Advaita thought speak for itself.
