Beschreibung:

Explores Indian thinking through the fundamental concepts which underlie it. Concepts discussed include consciousness and subjectivity, language and meaning, and logic and truth. To aid interpretation, insights from modern Western analytical and phenomenological philosophies are brought to bear.
Indian philosophy, between tradition and modernity; Consciousness and knowledge; Language and meaning; The nature of Indian logic; Indian theories of truth: their common framework; The concept of being and the ontologies; Time, history, man, and nature; Remarks on the Praman Theory; The nature of Indian philosophical thinking
In this book, Mohanty develops a new interpretation of the nature of Indian philosophical thinking. Using the original Sanskrit sources, he examines the concepts of consciousness and subjectivity, theories of language and logic, and meaning and truth, and explicates the concept of theoretical rationality which underlies the Indian philosophies. Mohanty brings to bear insights from modern western analytical and phenomenological philosophies, not so much for comparative purposes, but rather to interpret Indian thinking and to highlight its distinctive features.
