Description About the author
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 K Vallee Poussin, M. Walleser, F.O. Schrader, Stanislaw Schayer, G.N. Jha, A.B. Keith, Andr Bareau, Hajime. Nakamura, Kenneth K. Inada, Lewis R. K Lancaster, Alex; Wayman and David. 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 views 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.
