Old Sciences in India: An Introduction
Publisher: CreatiVentures Publishing
"Since the introduction of printing in 15th century Europe, Western science has become increasingly mechanized, both in its conception and its application to the world. But sadly, that mechanical development has come to be increasingly one-sided. Our modern sciences are thus now excessively mechanical. They overemphasize the use of external instruments and machines, in the pursuit of narrowly material objects. And they tend to neglect the education of our living faculties: as subtle instruments which enable us to do things better, think more clearly, feel more fairly, understand more deeply, and know more correctly what is true. This book is concerned with such educating sciences: as they have long been practiced in India and to quite some extent also in the West."
