Dear learned members,
I am happy to introduce to you a new title in the filed of Indology by my friend and scholar of philosophy Dr. Sundar Sarukkai, who has affiliation with National Institute of Advanced Studies, IISc, Bangalore. Hope, this book could be of interest of some of you.
Title: "Indian Philosophy and Philosophy of Science"
Author: Sundar Sarukkai, NIAS, Bangalore, India.
Distributor: Motilal Banarsidass, http://www.mlbd.com
Hardback pp. xiii + 268
Price: Rs. 450.
This book introduces the reader to Indian logic,
epistemology and some aspects of philosophy of
language in the Indian traditions as well as themes in
philosophy of science. The author argues why and how rational
traditions of Indian philosophy yield new concepts and
categories for modern contemporary thought,
particularly philosophy of science.
Indian rational traditions such as Indian logic,
drawn from both Buddhist and Nyâya philosophies, are
not only relevant for philosophy of science but are
also intrinsically concerned with scientific
methodology. Relationships between these traditions
and modern Western philosophy are also explored
thereby suggesting how Indian philosophy can engage
with contemporary philosophy of science.
