The Upanisadas And Modern Thoughts
This book deals with the lofty thoughts of the Upanishads. It is differently from anything published so far on the Upanishads. There have been many commentaries written during the past many centuries. The present book strees clear of them all. It deals with the material which has relevance to modern thought in science, epistemology, history of ideas, social history and philosophy. The topics discussed are of secular interest without any religious bias. Why did an eminent physicist like Schrodinger admire the Upanishadic Philosophy? To what extent was Schopenhauer indebted to the Upanishads for his doctrine of will? What is the significance of the thought experiments similar to Maxwell?s demon, demonstration experiments and Comet?s modes of thought found in the Upanishads? The history of the Karma doctrine recorded in the Upanishads indicates its socio-political origin. Is there a correspondence between the concept of energy and Brahman and Atman? How does the Upanishadic cosmogony compare with the doctrine of emergent evolution? These are some of the topics discussed in this book by an eminent physicist and which make it a unique book.
