Natural Realism and Contact Theory of Perception: Indian Philosophy's Challenge to Contemporary Paradigms of Knowledge (Paperback)
As far as I know, this book is the first of its kind, which not only firmly establishes the Indian point of view of perception, the foremost among the means of valid knowledge, but also effectively demolishes the Western theory of perception based on representationalism. Congrats for the bold and successful venture of the author (Mahamahopadhyaya M A Lakshmithathachar, President, Samskriti Foundation, Mysuru.)
India's rich intellectual tradition has a long history, stretching back to more than 2000 years. It is unfortunate that this tradition has been ignored in shaping the ideas and institutions of the modern world. This book engages and challenges the modern worldview that we have inherited from the West and shows that Indian thought has much to contribute towards building the world of the future (Mahamahopadhyaya V N Jha, Former Director, Centre of Advanced Study in Sanskrit, University of Pune.)
