Description of The Nay Science by Vishwa Adluri ePub
“The Nay Science: A History Of German Indology” is an attractive book about Hinduism history. Vishwa Adluri and Joydeep Bagchee are the authors of this impressive book. This is a brilliant study in the history of German Indology. This work is very comprehensive and in-depth in its treatment of the history of the philological method. The text is well written and never fails to engage the interest of the reader. Of particular interest to non-specialists are the fourth and fifth chapters, which offer a critical appraisal of the philological methods employed in German Indology while situating this discussion relative to such important phenomena as the emergence of Historicism and the development of Hermeneutics The final part of the work makes an important theoretical-ethical contribution to the discussion concerning “Future-Philology” (Zukunft-philology) and the history of the philological sciences.
A very important book well beyond the field of Indology, just as Foucault’s case studies of the formation of this or that institution, for all of their specificity, are nevertheless of broad general interest. Nay Science is important for anyone concerned with the status and future of the humanities. Adluri’s study of German Indology reveals the theological underpinnings of the ostensibly secular positivistic study of sacred and philosophical texts. We learn not only just how false are the claims of disinterested scientificity made on behalf of such scholarship, but also about the deep metaphysics involved in the practice of most modern philology. Adluri goes further, however, and offers (particularly in the book’s prologue and in its conclusion, “Gandhi on the Gita”) a vision for hermeneutical philology that resists reductionism and embraces polysemy and existential commitment.
