THE NATURE OF MAN AND CULTURE: ALTERNATIVE PARADIGMS IN ANTHROPOLOGY

Edited by BAIDYANATH SARASWATI

2001, xvi+175pp., ISBN: 81-7305-196-8, Rs. 700 (HB)


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 the USA. Anthropology based on the premises of a materialistic science does not answer but raises questions about man. 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.
