Time and Temporality in Samkhya-Yoga and Abhidharma Buddhism is a masterly treatment of the philosophical issues that have incessantly exercised the mind of scholars, both eastern and western, modern and ancient. The author shows remarkable ingenuity in his treatment of the themes under investigation and offers incisive insights into the questions of time and temporality. Reification of time, Dr. Braj Mohan Sinha maintains, is a metaphysical pre-supposition that hinders a proper understanding of the phenomenon of temporality. Temporality, he suggests, need not be conceived as an adjectival synonym of time. Rather, temporality must be understood in the context of the world involved consciousness which is continually on the go and, as the structure of becoming and phenomenal change, is essentially temporal. Temporality, implies both the fact of change and the finitude of the phenomenal existence as well as the corresponding subjective experience. The book raises fundamental questions, regarding assumptions of scholars who regard Samkhya-yoga and Abhidharma Buddhism as representing two diametrically opposed philosophical positions. While recognising a certain difference in the basic orientation of the two religious philosophies, the author successfully argues for significant congruence in their ontological and soteriological perspectives. Both the systems appear in close company specially in their articulation of the problem of temporality and its transcendence which can only be typified as a soteriology of the present. The author effectively brings out the philosophico-religious significance of this soteriology of 'present' and its non-eschatological nuances in contradistinction to the eschatological soteriologies of some other religious traditions.
