Abstract

A comparative assessment of Indian philosophical traditions with some of the western traditions may appear a tempting enterprise. However, the semantic positioning of the concepts forming the foundations of the two respective traditions poses a formidable challenge in bringing the two together within a single framework of abstractions. The difficulty is compounded by the colonial history of unequal power positions impacting philosophical traditions. However, the rapid shift from imagination to memory in technology and knowledge-transactions in recent decades, and the profound changes taking place in the nature of human cognition, may provide us an opening in this direction in future.
