East meets West in this fascinating exploration of conceptions of personal identity in Indian philosophy and modern Euro-American psychology. Author Anand Paranjpe considers these two distinct traditions with regard to historical, disciplinary, and cultural 'gaps' in the study of the self, and in the context of such theoretical perspectives as univocalism, relativism, and pluralism. This text includes a comparison of ideas on self as represented by two eminent thinkers - Erik H. Erikson for the Western view, and Advaita Vedanta for the Indian.
