Science and Tradition
Science and Tradition
Description
About the Book :

This volume contains contributions by a wide spectrum of scholars-scientists, philosophers, theorists of language, social scientists and other-and presents a panorama of thoughts and opinions on science, tradition and their inter-relationships. The aim is to develop a bridge between the world Out there (science) and the world in here (tradition), the former built up to perpetual hypotheses and the latter of perpetual facts . But then the hypotheses do change as to the facts: creative science and creative tradition are both live entities. Both have their respective cosmogonies: in science major events occur in real-time, in tradition they usually occur in the beginning or at the end. This closing millennium belongs to sciences to science, shaped in no mean measure by traditions. It is necessary to understand their interaction in order to comprehend volume is an attempt is an attempt in that direction.

The volume opens with a section on contemporary issues in modern science: issues of truth, reality and objectivity. Clearly these issues interface with questions tradition also raise and attempts to resolve. So the next section looks at the Indian tradition from a modernist perspective to assess these answers in the light of developments in scientific thought. The impact of all this knowledge in terms o social power, history and pedagogy, on society and its organization is assessed in the final section of the volume. It is earnestly hoped that his work will spur the debate further on these complex and fascinating philosophical problems.
