Enduring Colonialism: Classical Presences and Modern Absences in Indian Philosophy

A. Raghuramaraju (Author)
Synopsis This volume explores the relevance of classical texts and thought systems alongside contemporary philosophical consciousness. It also evaluates the absences in contemporary thought patterns and the new epistemes relevant to the Indian subcontinent. Raghuramaraju analyses the present lack of original philosophical discourse in the context of South Asia, especially India. He investigates the reasons for decline in traditional philosophical schools and Sanskritic studies in the subcontinent. The book discusses the interaction of Indian thinkers with the contemporary issues of philosophical engagement from the times of nineteenth century social reforms to the present day. Enduring Colonialism begins with an examination of the convergences of existence in the past, present, and future. It deliberates on the meaning of absences and the recent trends in Indian philosophical studies. Subsequent chapters also survey the evolving consciousness of existence, Novelties and repetitions involved in the new epistemes of thinking, and the meanings of 'reality'. All these aspects are seen as encompassed in the context of desire and liberation. This book will be useful to scholars and students of Indian philosophy, history, and religious studies. It will also interest the general readers
