Spirituality played a key role in the construction of Indian modernity. While science has certainly been an agent of modernization in India and other non-Western countries, what makes Indian modernity somewhat special is that spiritual leaders have also been instrumental in the process. Moreover, leading Indian scientists and spiritualists have recognized the immense potential for dialogue between the two disciplines. Post-colonial India, with its ready access to a holistic spirituality and significant achievements in science and technology, is a fertile site for such a dialogue. Each of the book’s four sections addresses specific themes: (1) The tension not just between science and spirituality, but also between the East and West; (2) how some key figures in India became carriers of modern consciousness, and explored the relationship between science and spirituality in the very process of trying to reform their society; (3) significant areas of research in which science and spirituality are both deeply implicated; and (4) the relationship of both scientific and spiritual practice with gender and social justice.

Human liberation has become an epochal challenge in today’s world, requiring not only emancipation from oppressive structures but also from the oppressive self. It is a multidimensional struggle and aspiration in which knowledge – self, social and spiritual – can play a transformative role. ‘Knowledge and Human Liberation: Towards Planetary Realizations’ undertakes such a journey of transformation, and seeks to rethink knowledge vis-à-vis the familiar themes of human interest, critical theory, enlightenment, ethnography, democracy, pluralism, rationality, secularism and cosmopolitanism. The volume also features a Foreword by John Clammer (United Nations University, Tokyo) and an Afterword by Fred Dallmayr (University of Notre Dame).

Written mostly in prose, "Uncovering and Discovering the KEY to Spiritual Growth" is sprinkled with some beautiful and transforming original poetry. It is a fascinating story of one man''s attempt to make sense out of a world turned upside down. In the midst of personal disaster, Rich Kae asked, "How do you find meaning in a world where all the givens are gone?" He started looking for the key or answer to this question by addressing the only thing he knew for certain -HIS PAIN! One chapter in the book entitled, "Pain is your Friend" reveals how being honest with and accepting his pain helped him to discover a new foundation upon which he could start to rebuild his life "one day at a time." The Book reflects the Author''s broad experience and education in the fields of psychology, religion, philosophy and the sciences. Many readers responded positively after having read the pre-publication manuscript. One such response by Rev. Donald Tastad reads, "One cannot read it without asking the most basic and important questions in life. One finds ample answers to those questions and of more importance, a way of life that leads to fulfillment and meaning."

Through a unique range of theoretical and practical case studies, this collection considers the relationship between the arts (understood as the visual arts, crafts, theatre, dance, and literature) and development, creating both a bridge between them that is rarely explored and filling in concrete ways the content of the “culture” part of the equation “culture and development”. It includes manifestations of culture and the ways in which they relate to development, and in turn contribute to such pressing issues as poverty alleviation, concern for the environment, health, empowerment, and identity formation. It shows how the arts are an essential part of the concrete understanding of culture, and as such a significant part of development thinking - including the development of culture, and not only of culture as an instrumental means to promote other development goals.
