Book Description:
The journey of Mind Sciences in India has been through the peaks and troughs. It is generally accepted that no other cultural tradition except Indian has given so much attention to the matters of mind and consciousness. Yet, recognition to the sciences studying Mind like Psychology as a scientific discipline came in very late. There were only a handful of Universities in India which had independent Departments of Psychology or Neuroscience at the time of India’s independence. In the last few decades, Mind Sciences in the country have picked steam resulting in major discussions and interactions across disciplines like Psychology, Neuroscience and Computer Science. This book examines the expanding horizons of the Mind Sciences. (Imprint: Nova)
