Body, Emotion and Mind

'Embodying' the Experiences in Indo-European Encounters

Edited by: Martin Tamcke, Gladson Jathanna

This volume decodes the European representations of the Indian body, emotions, and mind in diverse representational discourses. Efforts have been made to counter the mind-centered approaches to body and emotions, reassessing the body's role in intellectual insight and insisting on the centrality of the body in the reproduction and transformation of cultural experiences. The book will be of interest to anyone concerned with Indian and cross-cultural studies. (Series: Studien zur Orientalischen Kirchengeschichte / Studies on the Oriental Church History - Vol. 49)
