Hegel's India: A Reinterpretation, with Texts (Oip) (Paperback)
Hegel's India presents, collected together in one volume, all of Hegel's writings on and about India. Hegel also presents a scathing social critique of the caste-order - a theme reiterated in all his works. The central provocative issue is: if Indian art, religion, and philosophy, are so grossly inadequate, what explains his life-long fascination with it in this unparalleled way? This reinterpretation of Hegel's India writings argues that Indian thought haunted Hegel, representing a sort of evil twin to his own philosophy. Hegel's India raises such crucial questions while comprehensively and systematically presenting the various texts that lay out Hegel's reflections, shedding new light on Indological and Hegelian studies.
