The Integral Philosophy of Aurobindo: Hermeneutics and the Study of Religion

Posted By Jason Chen, Friday, June 15, 2018

The Integral Philosophy of Aurobindo: Hermeneutics and the Study of Religion (Paperback) book cover

Brainerd Prince

Sri Aurobindo was an Indian nationalist, philosopher, yogi, guru, and poet. This book is an enquiry into the integral philosophy of Aurobindo and its contemporary relevance. It offers a reading of Aurobindo’s key texts by bringing them into conversation with religious studies and the hermeneutical traditions. The central argument is that Aurobindo’s integral philosophy is best understood as a hermeneutical philosophy of religion.

Hinduism: A Contemporary Philosophical Investigation

Posted By Jason Chen, Friday, June 15, 2018

Hinduism: A Contemporary Philosophical Investigation (Paperback) book cover

Shyam Ranganathan

Hinduism: A Contemporary Philosophical Investigation explores Hinduism and the distinction between the secular and religious on a global scale. According to Ranganathan, a careful philosophical study of Hinduism reveals it as the microcosm of philosophical disagreements with Indian resources, across a variety of topics, including: ethics, logic, the philosophy of thought, epistemology, moral standing, metaphysics, and politics. This analysis offers an original and fresh diagnosis of studying Hinduism, colonialism, and a global rise of hyper-nationalism, as well as the frequent acrimony between scholars and practitioners of Hindu traditions.
