This book shows the close relation between the phenomenology of the west and the
phenomenological approach taken by Indian thinkers, both classical and modern. It
illustrates that the underlying spirit of phenomenology and hermeneutics has been
consciously followed by Indian philosophers for centuries and is not peculiar to Western
thinkers. It also shows that Edmund Husserl and K.C. Bhattachryya were aware of these
parallel trends of thought.
Phenomenology and Indian Philosophy
addresses not only the basic theme of phenomenology, but its aesthetic,
social,psychological, scientific, and technological aspects as well.
