About this Item

This Volume is a collection of Essays on Time in Buddhism. Contributors are eminent scholars from all over the world, including Th. Stcherbatsky, Louis de la Vallee Poussin, M. Walleser, RD. Schrader, Stanislaw Schayer, G.N. Jha, A.B. Keith, Andre Bareau, Hajime Nakamura, Kenneth K. Inada, Lewis R. Lancaster, Alex Wayman and David J. Kalupahana. These essays have already appeared in different journals or Books between the years 1902 and 1989. Most of them were inaccesible and there was a need to reprint them in one volume. This book aims at precisely that with a view to encouraging further Research in the field. In the Introduction, H.S. Prasad offers critical appraisals of the essays. He shows that the so-called reality of Time is nothing but a derived notion from change, and that past, present and future are only tensed ways of referring to different psychological states of remembering, perceiving and anticipating. Prasad`s theory of Time is a viable alternative in the direction of solving many Puzzles and perplexities concerning time. Contents: Introduction/H. S. Prasad 1.
