A Golden Chain of Civilizations: Indic, Iranic, Semitic and Hellenic (from C. 600 BC to C. AD 600) (Section 2: Science, Philosophy and Culture) (History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization: Vol. I, Part 5)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8187586567 / 9788187586562; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The volumes of the PROJECT ON THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE, PHILOSOPHY AND CULTURE IN INDIAN CIVILIZATION aim at discovering the main aspects of India’s heritage and present them in an interrelated way. These volumes, in spite of their unitary look, recognize the difference between the areas of material civilizations and those of ideational culture. The Project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers and writers who are methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. In fact contributions are made by different scholars with different ideological persuasions and methodological approaches. The Project is marked by what may be called ‘methodological pluralism’. In spite of its primarily historical character, this Project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is for the first time that an endeavour of such a unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization like India. The current accounts of the history of civilization do not generally appear to give adequate importance to non-western civilizations. Works like Needham’s Science and Civilization in China are rare. The accounts of Indic civilization on the other hand have either neglected the factor of civilizational contacts or represented them in an inadequate manner. Few serious attempts have been made to gain an insight into human civilization in all its aspects through the comparative historical and integrated studies. Historical research necessarily tied to the study of the source material is still in the process of rising to the level of universal history. Volume I, The Dawn and Development of Indian Civilization comprise six parts. Parts 4 and 5 are intended to review the history of science, philosophy and culture in Indian civilization in the context of civilizational contacts with the Iranic, Semitic and Hellenic worlds and comparable developments in them. Appropriately entitled A Golden Chain of Civilizations, Part 4 covers the period upto c.600 BC. Part 5 covers the period from c.600 BC to AD 600 in two sections-Sections 1: Cultural Contacts and Movements, and Section 2: Science, Philosophy and Culture. Printed Pages: 841. 037191

Each section focuses on technology, Regional Study, Revenue administration and Produces, Peasant Study, Institutional aspect, Horticulture, Religion/Folklore, Music, Science in Agriculture, Dairy Farming, Policy Reforms, Forestry and Environment. The Section-II (post-Independence India) of the Volume V Part II, has nineteen chapters on regional study of Rajasthan (1), Jain agricultural practices (2), Agriculture in Folklore/Music of Himachal Pradesh (3), Agriculture produces - Mango, Tea and Coffee (4, 5), I.C.A.R.

The volume is a lucid summation of existing knowledge on agriculture in medieval and modern India up to 1947 with research orientation while the Section II has a critical appraisal of post Independence Indian Agriculture up to the present. For a complete vision and understanding of the subject vis-a-vis policy/reforms/science/technology etc. both sections are essential continuity. The volume in both sections are unique in the sense that every chapter has been authored by experts who have utilized official as well as unofficial sources for a critical analysis of the development of Indian Agriculture against the back drop of ecology, technology, folklore/music and human aspect and civilization aspects.

The volumes of the PROJECT ON THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE, PHILOSOSPHY AND CULTURE IN INDIAN CIVILIZATION aim at discovering the main aspects of India’s heritage and present them in an interrelated way. In spite of their unitary look, these volumes recognize the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers and writers who are methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments.

Inspite of its primarily historical character, this project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is for the first time that an endeavour of such a unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization. Buddhism can truly be called a universal religion. Like a kaleidoscope one can glean different spiritual structures in it. For some the rationalist and agnostic aspects of the early Pali Buddhism is important, others are inspired by the Mahayana texts and the Japanese tradition. Buddhism is to be valued for its idealistic, transcendental even non-dual tendencies. Still for some others the existential tendency and phenomenology seem significant in Buddhism. The study of Buddhist logic as preserved in Tibet and Mongolia also led to the appreciation of Buddhist philosophy as logic and epistemology with a strong ‘Kantian’ bias. The contribution of Buddhism went a long way in creating the essence of Indian culture, universal in its teachings. The catholic and rational message of Buddhism made it a dynamic and expansive world religion. What seems an anti-essentialist philosophy to the modern man actually shows different levels of spiritual experiences culminating in niruana. The study of Buddhism has attracted a host of scholars in India and abroad in all disciplines, e.g. History, Philosophy, Religion, Language, Literature and the Arts since ancient times. The present volume covers all the aspects of Buddhism by distinguished scholars. The topics range from archaeology and the date of the Buddha to contemporary Buddhism. The intricacies of the original Gospel, Hinayana, Mahayana, Buddhist monasticism and art, and Buddhism in relation to contemporary issues have been dealt with thoroughly. Printed Pages: 875. 037463

Hinduism-I (History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization, Volume VII, Part 3)

In spite of their unitary look, these volumes recognize the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers and writers who are methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. The Project is marked by what may be called ‘methodological pluralism’ . Inspite of its primarily historical character, this project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is for the first time that an endeavour of such a unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization. As is well-known, Hinduism is one of the oldest religions of the word with approximately one billion followers and about 85% of the in its homeland, India. The word ‘Hinduism’ is perhaps a misnomer for what appears like a ‘religion’, but as has been described by Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, is more of ‘a culture than a creed’. As pointed out in this volume, the word ‘Hindu’ is derived from ‘Sindhu’, the Sanskrit name for the river Indus, and the original inhabitants of the Indus Valley and beyond were so called by foreigners, especially by the Islamic invaders. Because of the lack of any fixed dogma or doctrine, the absence of any one holy book propounding any fixed doctrine and the absence of any organized church or institution that can bring its followers together, Hinduism has emerged as a complex religion based as it is, like the ancient Greek religion, on freedom of thought, belief and expression and also on tolerance and non-violence. At the same time Hinduism presents the students of world religions with a serious difficulty of bringing together the various beliefs, doctrines, customs and institutions under the same roof called Hinduism. Various accounts of Hinduism published so far therefore, give us only partial pictures of this unique faith. In this Volume 45 scholars representing various disciplines and in different professions, have come together to contribute 63 chapters on various colourful aspects of Hinduism covering historically a very wide area, from vedic religion to modern Hinduism. Topically they cover various basic concepts, textual studies, customs, rituals and legal institutions, studies of Hindu social organizations, various movements and cults, like Saivism, Vaisnavism etc., Hindu art aesthetics and architecture, response to and relation with other Indian religions, and modern Hinduism represented by great reformists like Raja Rammohun Roy, Swami Dayananda Saraswati, Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatam Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore etc, and finally the volume concludes with a chapter on the reaction of Hinduism to science and technology. The methodology of study as a whole is objective, balanced and unbiased, neither partisan nor unfairly critical, and no attempt has been made to defend any of the shortcomings of Hinduism or to glorify any of its merits.

The volumes of the PROJECT ON THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE, PHILOSOPHY AND CULTURE IN INDIAN CIVILIZATION aim at discovering the main aspects of India's heritage and present them in an interrelated way. These volumes in spite of their unitary look recognize the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The Project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers and writers who are methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. In fact contributions are made by different scholars with different ideological persuasions and methodological approaches. The Project is marked by what may be called 'methodological pluralism'. In spite of its primarily historical character, this Project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is for the first time that an endeavour of such a unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization like India. Maharashtra, as the present State, came into existence on 1 May 1960. This volume presents the story of glorious past, going back to nearly two thousand years, and the vibrant present. During the ancient period Maharashtra was ruled by important dynasties like the Mauryas, Satavahanas (when Indo-Roman trade flourished), Vakatakas, Chalukyas, Rashtrakutas (known for contributing to art and architecture), Kalachuris, Shilaharas and Yadavas. The medieval period witnessed the arrival of the Khiljis, other Muslims dynasties and the spread of Islam, the rise of Shivaji and his fight for Hinadavi Svaraja, and the rule of the Peshwas. It was the end of the rule of the Peshwas by the British and the arrival of other Europeans that heralds the 'modern period'. The volume also covers in detail accounts of socio-religious activities and reforms, including movements for the emancipation of the 'depressed' classes and the Dalits, spearheaded by Babasaheb Ambedkar and Mahatma Gandhi. The volume is divided into six parts: I. Geography and History; II. Culture, Art and Architecture; III. Impact of other Languages on the Culture of Maharashtra; IV. Impact of other Religions on the Culture of Maharashtra; V. Education, Society, Language and Literature; VI. Philosophy. The various contributions in this volume by eminent scholars explore the interface of heterogeneous influences that have contributed to a unique synthesis of cultures that is the face of Maharashtra today.

Psychology & Psychoanalysis (History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization, Volume XIII, Part 3)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8187586540 / 9788187586548; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The volumes of the PROJECT ON THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE, PHILOSOPHY AND CULTURE IN INDIAN CIVILIZATION aim at discovering the main aspects of India's heritage and present them in an interrelated way. In spite of their unitary look, these volumes recognize the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers and writers who are methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. The Project is marked by what may be called 'methodological pluralism'. Inspite of its primarily historical character, this project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is for the first time that an endeavour of such a unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization. Psychology and Psychoanalysis highlights the confluence of Indian and Western perspectives on the explorations of mental processes and behaviour. The volume is an authoritative source on the history and current standing of the new synthesis of idea that is emerging under the concept of Indian Psychology in the beginning of the 21st century. It shows how a traditionally occidental scientific discipline-psychology-can benefit from the rich cultural-historical traditions of all the different social practices and beliefs that have been present in the cultures of the Indian sub-continent for centuries. While occidental psychology has usually overlooked the contributions from outside the Euro-American axis of social power relations, it cannot do that anymore. Psychology in the Occident has been in a conceptual crisis ever since it's beginning, and overcoming that crisis requires constructive innovation from other cultural traditions. The volume attends to some of the major issues central to the contemporary psychological scholarship. It offers perspectives on psychological phenomena and processes and situates them in the Indian context. In particular it brings to the center stage the issues that emanate from the interface of culture and psyche. In this process the volume offers a survey in some of the major domains of psychology to articulate disciplinary developments. The volume provides focused discussions on issue in each of these areas as well as on the emergent concerns. Contributed by leading psychologists in respective fields every chapter in the volume draws upon a theme of disciplinary and cultural significance to offer critical insights. The chapters are devoted to probing psychological themes in the tradition of culturally sensitive human science. In this way the volume fosters the connections between the scientific spirit and cultural intelligibilities. It offers analysis of the shifts and transformations in the discipline and documents scholarship that acknowledges the contributions from indigenous knowledge systems as well as contemporary developments in major subfields. Comprehensive and wide-ranging in scope the volume brings together current perspectives on the manner in which the various facets of human mind, behaviour and experience. It attempts at articulation and integration of Indian thought traditions and modern psychology by engaging in dialogue. By presenting authoritative and exhaustive analyses of substantive processes, debates, and phenomena relating to consciousness, self, identity, emotion, group behaviour, intergroup relations, justice, organization, values, gender, violence, well being and psychological knowledge.
