      '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.
