Book Review - Article published in Newsletter


The volume comprises a selection of fifty­ four papers presented at the seminar held in November 1990 at IGNCA where over sixty delegates from twelve countries and a dozen disciplines were engaged in profound and meaningful dialogue for six
days. Each paper brings a penetrating insight into this all permeating and pervading preoccupation of man since the dawn of awareness of his being and becoming. The papers are grouped into eight sections: (l)Time: Concept, (2) Time: The Philosophic Discourse, (3) Time: Geological and Biological, (4) Time: Social and Cultural, (5) Time: Ritual, (6) Time: Response of the Arts, (7) Time: Consciousness, and (8) Time: Transcendence and Immanence.
