Vishnu on Freud’s Desk

 
T.G. Vaidyanathan (Editor) Jeffrey J. Kripal (Editor)
Synopsis Freudian psychoanalysis, commonly critiqued for being rooted in a male-centric, Central European ethos, has surprisingly been an extremely fertile ground for the study of the Indian psyche. This volume brings together a rich variety of classical and contemporary writings on aspects of Hindu culture, and places these within the frames of understanding of psychoanalysis. The contributors include Girindrasekhar Bose, Sarah Caldwell, G.M. Carstairs, Alfred Collins, Paul B. Courtright, Prakash Desai, Wendy Doniger, Robert P. Goldman, Christiane Hartnack, Sudhir Kakar, Jeffrey J. Kripal, Stanley N. Kurtz, J.M. Masson, Ashis Nandy, Gananath Obeyesekere, William B. Parsons, A.K. Ramanujan, B.K. Ramanujam, and Alan Roland. To lay readers interested in psychoanalysis, and to academics interested in the fields of psychology, sociology, cultural studies and Hindu thought, this is an invaluable collection of essays.
