Ritual and Mantras: Rules Without Meaning

Price : $25.00
ISBN # : 9788120814110
Author : Frits Staal
pages: 490
Edition : Hardback
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Motilal Banarsidass
Published : 01/01/1996

The book is an original study of ritual and mantras which shows that rites lead a life of their own, unaffected by religion or society. In its analysis of Vedic ritual, it uses methods inspired by logic, linguistics, anthropology and Asian studies. New insights are offered into various topics including music, bird song and the origin of language. The discussion culminates in a proposal for a new human science that challenges the current dogma of "the two cultures" of sciences and humanities.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Thursday 21 October, 2010.
