Perennial Philosophy in the Postmodern World
Published by: INDIAN PUBLISHERS DISTRIBUTORS NEW DELHI
This book is an attempt to respond to the mess in which modern man finds himself by exploring resources from perennial philosophy and its postmodern adaptation in Osho's postmetaphysical and nontraditional mystical thought. It attempts to present his reading/misreading of the tradition, highlight some of his unique features as an expositor of mysticism for an audience moulded or influenced by the modern and postmodern thought currents, make a comparative study of some of his ideas and make "sense" of his apparently nonsenscial worldview. It critically situates him in the context of the world community of sages and saints of whom he seeks to be an interpreter. It discusses his originality, his radicalism, his invaluable insights, his strengths and his limitations and his proposed manifesto for creating the new man and supraformal religiosity.
