Sinopse

Our current scientific achievements in understanding the working of the mind are commendable. However, in it’s over insistence on objectivity science seems to have overlooked some important dimensions of the mind. There are many questions science fails to provide satisfactory answer. Interestingly, many of these questions were addressed by ancient philosophies and probably in the true scientific spirit we should look at these philosophies with an open mind. This second part of the 3 part series Marvels of the Mind focuses on these missed dimensions and how ancient philosophies address them. A range of ancient philosophies, amazingly well conceptualized, that look at different aspects of the mind are discussed in the current book. There is the ancient philosophy of Plato who points out the limitations of our sense perception, the elaborate psychology of ancient Buddhists that almost parallels with our scientific understanding, the philosophy of Sankara who even questions the reality of existence and the concept of domains beyond mind that are the focus of ancient Upanishads. All these, and more, are explained clearly in this second part of the series. These philosophies compel us to rethink on our current definition of science and its approach. The book also provides a smooth transition point from science to philosophy and finally to domains beyond both these.
