"The Nature of Man and Culture is a response to the relentless search for alternative paradigms in anthropology. Presented here are contributions from a distinguished group of experts from India, Kenya, Korea, Venezuela, Mexico and USA. Anthropology based on the premises of a materialistic science does not answer but raises questions about man. As for secular western science what is one to think? Are other modes of thinking possible outside the modern scientific horizon? Are there no visions of man, no other pillars of truth? Must everything be aided only by reason? Must an African, an Indian and a Chinese be uprooted from the nature-integrated culture? Can one observe the hidden variables of another culture? Do we have to follow the Darwinian – Tylorian – Durkheimian – Morganian – Malinoiskian anthropology, with no real choice at all? Or do we look for a new understanding? To answer such central questions, the authors of this volume reflect on sacred science, space and time, experience and expression, and question of universality. An effort has been made to ‘re-language’ traditional thought in terms of sacred science, cosmic anthropology, sonic anthropology, philosophical anthropology, quantum anthropology, experiential anthropology, people’s anthropology and so on. This book is an important contribution to the field of anthropological studies and an invaluable tool for anyone interested in a deeper understanding of human nature and culture." Printed Pages: 192.
