This book tells the story of philosophy in India through a series
of exceptional individual acts of philosophical
virtuosity. It brings together forty leading
international scholars to record the diverse figures,
movements, and approaches that constitute philosophy in
the geographical region of the Indian subcontinent, a
region sometimes nowadays designated South Asia. The
volume aims to be ecumenical, drawing from different
locales, languages, and literary cultures, inclusive of
dissenters, heretics and sceptics, of philosophical ideas
in thinkers not themselves primarily philosophers, and
reflecting India-s north-western borders with the
Persianate and Arabic worlds, its north-eastern
boundaries with Tibet, Nepal, Ladakh and China, as well
as the southern and eastern shores that afford maritime
links with the lands of Theravda Buddhism.

In the wake of the Brexit vote and the election of Donald
Trump, globalization has found itself increasingly under
the microscope. An active international discussion is
underway and the ideological viewpoint that the reversal
of globalization and a return to protectionism and
isolation will cure the world-s ills is touted by many.
In the midst of the growing prominence of international
inter connectivity and contradicting attention attained by
skewed misinformation about global impact, Global
Business is a straightforward commentary on mega trends

Science Fiction and Philosophy deals with science-
fictional thought experiments and their long history in
philosophy, with roots back to the mythological
inventions of ancient philosophers such as Plato and
Zhuangzi. These thought experiments play a prominent role
especially in current metaphysical theorizing about
personal identity, artificial minds, and the nature of
time. This issue includes reflections on the nature of
science fiction, on the epistemology of science fictional
thought experiments, on our possible moral and social
relationships with future intelligent beings, on the
prospects of human or post-human self-transformation, and
on time travel.
