Indology and Marxist Hermeneutics

Indology and Marxist Hermeneutics

Date: 2009
Creator: Jain, Pankaj
Description: This article discusses Indology and Marxist Hermeneutics. Although Indian civilization has been one of the most extensively researched fields in the Western Humanities departments, it remains one of the most misinterpreted subjects. Scholars have applied various theories and methods to study this ancient field. However, often their analyses and interpretations fail to do justice to this complex tradition. In the name of "scientific objectivity", they have often applied their own subjective bias. In this paper, I endeavor to demonstrate how the theories of Marx have misinterpreted Indian culture.

Jainism, Dharma, and Environmental Ethics

Jainism, Dharma, and Environmental Ethics

Date: 2010
Creator: Jain, Pankaj
Description: This article discusses the absence of a formal category of environmental ethics in Jainism and explores Jainism's historical relationship to environmental ethics. It also compares Jainist perspectives on the consumption of natural resources with other lifestyles. From the few examples of Jain "environmentalism", this article also seeks to redefine the categories such as "religion" and "environmental ethics", especially as they are applied to the non-Western parts of the world such as the Jains in India.

Renunciation and Non-Renunciation in Indian Films

Renunciation and Non-Renunciation in Indian Films

Date: 2010
Creator: Jain, Pankaj
Description: This article reviews the renunciation and non-renunciation in Indian films. Renunciation is one of the most widely studied subjects among Indic traditions. The image of a half-naked ascetic with a stick in one hand and a begging bowl in other has captured the attention of scholars more often than the mundane householder. Whereas the ascetic captured the imagination with his (and sometimes her) individualistic spirit rebelling against the maligned caste hierarchy, the householder has been seen as a poor creature living a routine life according to the rules dictated by the caste (varna) and the stage in life (ashrama). The author reviews several films to analyze the portrayal of ascetics and householders, but cannot claim that the review is encyclopedic because there are so many films with variations on this theme. All of the films introduced here were made by Indian filmmakers except for two Hollywood films, the Householder (1963) and Siddhartha (1972), that were filmed in India with an Indian cast and story.
