From the Back of the Book

The strikingly innovation elucidation charts out the structural map of wisdom-the finalized knowledge concerning life, both in its generic and specific aspects. Nataraja Guru, the eminent contemporary thinker, handles the theme as well as the methodology in a very original way. Thematically it encom-passes the entire range of human wisdom, including epistemology, axiology, mathematics, sociology, politics and mysticism. The author presents a scheme of coherent pattern in which all distinctions between contemplative and active, functional and theoretical, contingent and necessary, Eastern and Western dissolve into the Unity of the Absolute Truth. The subject matter and object matter of wisdom when put in proper perspective around the normative notion of the Absolute culminate in the idea of common human happiness. In the age of excessive specialization and compartmentalization, Nataraja Guru's handling of the subject matter is a unique response to the legitimate cry for unification and integration. The methodology adopted throughout this interpretations unitively taking care of the vertical progress of human wisdom along with the horizontal process of adjustment with the incidental necessities that are demanded by the process.

Nataraja Guru's insightful combination of the spiritual with the modern science stands out as a tall land-Mark in the field of contemporary wisdom and scholarship. It is a powerful beacon to the solace-seeking mankind that is being tortured by the outrageously materialistic society.
