'The Nature of Man and Culture' is a response to the relentless search
alternative paradigms in anthropology. Presented here are Contributions
from a distinguished group of experts from India, Kenya, Korea,
Mexico and USA. Anthropology based on the premises of a materialistic
science does not answer but raises questions about man. As for secular
Western science what is one to think? Are other modes of thinking
outside the modern scientific horizon? Are there no visions of man, no
other pillars of truth? Must everything be aided only by reason? Must an
African, an Indian and a Chinese be uprooted from the nature-integrated
culture? Can one observe the hidden variables of another culture? Do we
have to follow the Darwinian - Tylorian - Durkheimian - Morganian -
Malinoiskian anthropology, with no real choice at all? Or do we look for
new understanding? To answer such central questions, the authors of this
volume reflect on sacred science, space and time, experience and
expression, and question of universality. An effort has been made to
're-language' traditional thought in terms of sacred science, cosmic
anthropology, sonic anthropology, philosophical anthropology, quantum
anthropology, experiential anthropology, people's anthropology and so
This book is an important contribution to the field of anthropological
studies and an invaluable tool for anyone interested in a deeper
understanding of human nature and culture.
