Abstract

Douglas L. Berger Oakton College Breaking Barriers: Essays on Asian and Comparative Philosophy in Honor of Ramakrishna Puligandla. Edited by Frank J. Hoffman and Godabarisha Mishra. Fremont, CA: Asian Humanities Press, 2003. Pp. ix þ 359. That Thou Art: Wisdom of the Upanishads. By R. Puligandla. Fremont, CA: Asian Humanities Press, 2002. Pp. xviii þ 145. Sprache und Wirklichkeit: Eine interkulturelle Perspektive. By Xianglong Zhang and Ramakrishna Puligandla. Translated by Christian Dick. Nordhausen, Deutschland: Traugott Bautz, 2005. Pp. 142. The breadth of the works of Ramakrishna Puligandla in Indian, Western, and crosscultural philosophy over the past four decades has been truly remarkable. Puligandla shifted from teaching physics to philosophy at the University of Toledo in the mid1960s, and he has published writings on topics ranging from B. F. Skinner, Albert Camus, and quantum theory to Vedanta and Madhyamika from the mid-1970s until ¯ ¯ today, more than twelve years after his retirement. Given the unwavering focus of his philosophical convictions, however, this great range exhibits a diversity that is only apparent, for the thread of Puligandla's thought is woven out of the fundamental Advaita thesis that pure consciousness is the nondual and thus all-encompassing ground of existence.
