    Gendering the Digital Body: Women and Computers. [REVIEW]Archana Barua & Ananya Barua - 2012 - AI and Society 27 (4):465-477.
    As we live in a culture where “everything can be commodified, measured and calculated and can be put in the competitive market for sale, detached from its roots and purpose,” there is need to redefine our humanness in terms of the changing nature of science, technology, and their deeper impact on human life. More than anything else, it is Information Technology that now has tremendous influence on all spheres of our life, and in a sense, IT has become the destiny (...)

    Phenomenology of Religion.Archana Barua - 2008 - Lexington Books.
    Out of the wide variety of themes covered by Husserl's phenomenology and later developed by Heidegger, Merleau Ponty, and others in different possible directions, the present work attempts to indicate the few features of the method that derives from Edmund Husserl's basic themes of the phenomenological movement and its methodology. Barua explores the manner in which this method has been applied to the study of art and religion by other phenomenologists and accordingly introduces the problem of this profound bulk, (...)

    Analysing Gaze in Terms of Subjective and Objective Interpretation: Sartre and Lacan.Pallavi Sharma & Archana Barua - 2017 - Human Studies 40 (1):61-75.
    Considering the Hegelian master–slave dichotomy over the exchange of the gaze, the paper focuses on the issue of vision and visibility, reinterpreted in Sartre’s phenomenological discussions in different ways. The Hegelian emphasis on recognition finds reflection in the treatment of vision as force expressed through visibility in Sartre and as an issue of self recognition in Lacan. Drawing the Hegelian tag with a comparative argument between Sartre and Lacan, the paper focuses on the different perspectives over the concept of gaze (...)

    Husserl, Heidegger, and the Transcendental Dimension of Phenomenology.Archana Barua - 2007 - Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology 7 (1):1-10.
    Understanding phenomenology as a philosophical approach in which human-world relationships are analysed, as well as the constitution of subjectivity and objectivity within these relationships, this paper addresses some issues related to the transcendental dimension in the phenomenology of Edmund Husserl. An attempt is also made to re-address some issues related to phenomenology and its transcendental dimension as understood by adherents of hermeneutical phenomenology such as Paul Ricoeur. In essence, the focus of the paper is on exploring the following issues: what (...)

    The Absolute of Advaita and the Spirit of Hegel: Situating Vedānta on the Horizons of British Idealisms.Ankur Barua - 2017 - Journal of Indian Council of Philosophical Research 34 (1):1-17.
    PurposeA significant volume of philosophical literature produced by Indian academic philosophers in the first half of the twentieth century can be placed under the rubric of ‘Śaṁkara and X’, where X is Hegel, or a German or a British philosopher who had commented on, elaborated or critiqued the Hegelian system. We will explore in this essay the philosophical significance of Hegel-influenced systems as an intellectual conduit for these Indo-European conceptual encounters, and highlight how for some Indian philosophers the British variations (...)

    Investigating the “Science” in “Eastern Religions”: A Methodological Inquiry.Ankur Barua - 2017 - Zygon 52 (1):124-145.
    This article explores some of the understandings of “science” that are often employed in the literature on “science and Eastern religions.” These understandings crucially shape the raging debates between the avid proponents and the keen detractors of the thesis that Eastern forms of spirituality are uniquely able to subsume the sciences into their metaphysical–axiological horizons. More specifically, the author discusses some of the proposed relations between “science” and “Eastern religions” by highlighting three themes: the relation between science and metaphysics, the (...)

    Myth as Metaphysics: The Christian Saviour and the Hindu Gods. [REVIEW]Ankur Barua - 2012 - Sophia 51 (3):379-393.
    A distinction which is often rehearsed in some strands of Christian writing on the ‘Eastern’ religions, especially Hinduism, is that while they are full of ‘mythological’ fancies, Biblical faith is based on the solid rock of ‘historical’ truth. I argue that the sharp contours of this antithesis are softened when we consider two issues regarding the relation between ‘myth’ and ‘history’. First, the decades–long attempts to separate the ‘historical’ facts about Jesus Christ from the interpretive elements in the Biblical narrative (...)

    Revisiting the Gandhi–Ambedkar Debates Over ‘Caste’: The Multiple Resonances of Varņa.Ankur Barua - 2019 - Journal of Human Values 25 (1):25-40.
    While Gandhi and Ambedkar hold similar standpoints on the relation between religious orderings of the world and shapes of social existence, they sharply diverge, on certain occasions, regarding the question of what the crucial terms ‘caste’ and varņa refer to, so that they often seem to be talking past each other. Gandhi sought to cut through various traditional forms of Hindu socio-religious practices and develop a Hinduism which is grounded in the values of universal peace, love and benevolence. Ambedkar too (...)

    Schopenhauer’s Philosophy of Will and Sankara’s Advaita Vedanta.Arati Barua - 2008 - Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 8:23-29.
    It is a well established fact that Arthur Schopenhauer was the first major Western thinker who was so much influenced by the Upanishads that he wrote, "In the whole world there is no study so beneficial and so elevating as that of the Upanishads. It has been the solace of my life, it will be the solace of my death”. This view of Schopenhauer about the Upanishads not only shows his familiarity with the Eastern thought but also it reflects his (...)

    Transformational Learning for Health Professionals Through a Theatre of the Oppressed Workshop.Satendra Singh, Juhi Kalra, Sanjoy Das, Purnima Barua, Navjeevan Singh & Upreet Dhaliwal - forthcoming - Medical Humanities:medhum-2019-011718.
    Theatre of the Oppressed is a powerful participatory tool for communities to examine their struggles against oppression. The healthcare community has problems inherent to complex, unequal power equations, and TO may be a useful means to understand and respond to their struggle. A 3-day workshop on TO was facilitated by the authors in the Himalayan Institute of Medical Sciences in Dehradun, India, in August 2017. The workshop culminated in the ‘Forum Theatre’, which included five short plays, each depicting a struggle (...)

    Do Fuel Type and Place of Cooking Matter for Acute Respiratory Infection Among Afghan Children? Evidence From the Afghanistan DHS 2015.Rayhan Sk, Mohammad Hafiz Rasooly & Somdutta Barua - 2020 - Journal of Biosocial Science 52 (1):140-153.
    In Afghanistan, acute respiratory infection is a leading cause of under-five mortality. Previous studies on the effects of cooking fuel on ARI have only looked at the types of cooking fuel, and not the effects of the location of the cooking place. The present study aimed to assess the effects of fuel type and place of cooking on the prevalence of ARI among under-five children in Afghanistan. Descriptive statistics and multilevel logistic regression analysis were performed for 31,063 children using data (...)

    The Problem of Criteria and the Necessity of Natural Theology.Ankur Barua - 2013 - Heythrop Journal 54 (2):166-180.
    Most streams of Christianity have emphasized the unknowability of God, but they have also asserted that Christ is the criterion through whom we may have limited access to the depths of God, and through whose life and death we can formulate the doctrine of God as Triune. This standpoint, however, leads to certain complications regarding ‘translating’ the Christian message to adherents of other religious traditions, and in particular the question, ‘Why do you accept Christ as the criterion?’, is one that (...)

    Revisiting the Rationality of Reincarnation Talk.Ankur Barua - 2015 - International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 76 (3):218-231.
    A survey of the key arguments that have been developed for and against the rationality of belief in reincarnation shows that often the central dispute is not over what the ‘data’ are but how to assess the ‘data’ from specific metaphysical–hermeneutical horizons. By examining some of these arguments formulated by Hindu thinkers as well as their critiques – from the perspectives of metaphysical naturalism and Christian theology – we argue that one of the reasons why these debates remain intractable is (...)

    Hick and Radhakrishnan on Religious Diversity: Back to the Kantian Noumenon.Ankur Barua - 2015 - Sophia 54 (2):181-200.
    We shall examine some conceptual tensions in Hick’s ‘pluralism’ in the light of S. Radhakrishnan’s reformulation of classical Advaita. Hick himself often quoted Radhakrishnan’s translations from the Hindu scriptures in support of his own claims about divine ineffability, transformative experience and religious pluralism. However, while Hick developed these themes partly through an adaptation of Kantian epistemology, Radhakrishnan derived them ultimately from Śaṁkara, and these two distinctive points of origin lead to somewhat different types of reconstruction of the diversity of world (...)

    Encountering Violence in Hindu Universes.Ankur Barua - 2017 - Journal of Religion and Violence 5 (1):49-78.
    A study of Hindu engagements with violence which have been structured by scriptural themes reveals that violence has been regulated, enacted, resisted, negated or denied in complex ways. Disputes based on Vedic orthodoxy were channeled, in classical India, through the mythical frameworks of gods clashing with demons, and later in the medieval centuries this template was extended to the Muslim foreigners who threatened the Brahmanical socio-religious orders. In the modern period, the electoral mechanisms of colonial modernity spurred Hindu anxieties about (...)

    Schopenhauer and Krausz on Objects of Interpretation.Arati Barua - 2005 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 12 (1):33-37.
    The paper is intended as a study in the philosophy of interpretation of Michael Krausz in relation to the philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer. The idea is to throw some new lights on Schopenhauer’s philosophy by critically examining thc works of Schopenhauer in the light of Krausz’s philosophy of interpretation. We shall examine the extent to which Krausz’s philosophy of interpretation could provide a framework of interpretation of the more or less enigmatic parts of constructive realism in Schopenhauer’s The World As (...)

    Contraceptive Failure: Levels, Trends and Determinants in Matlab, Bangladesh.Radheshyam Bairagi, M. Mazharul Islam & Manoj Kumar Barua - 2000 - Journal of Biosocial Science 32 (1):107-123.
    This study investigated the levels, trends and determinants of contraceptive use-failure in Matlab, Bangladesh, using a set of prospective data on 25,960 women of reproductive age. The data were extracted from the Record Keeping System of Matlab for the period 1978–94. If there was any live birth during the use or within 7 months after the discontinuation of use, it was considered as a failure. The life table technique and hazard model were used as analytical tools. The results suggest that (...)

    Do Brute Facts Need to Be Civilised? Universals in Classical Indian Philosophy and Contemporary Analytic Ontology.Ankur Barua - 2015 - Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research 32 (1):1-17.
    A vital point of dispute within both classical Indian thought and contemporary analytic ontology is the following: which facts are brute so that they are, so to speak, beyond any need of civilizing through logical transformations, conceptual revisions, or linguistic reformulations? In this article, we discuss certain strands of the debate in these fields with two central purposes in mind. Firstly, we shall argue that metaphysical debates are seemingly interminable partly because disputing parties carve up the ontological landscape in such (...)

    The devotional literatures across the Hindu bhakti traditions of medieval India are shaped by distinctive styles of affective responses to the divine reality. A theme which recurs in several layers of their songs is a theological dialectic between divine majesty and divine accessibility; the divine is not only simply transcendent in the sense of being a distant deity but is also immanently present in and through a range of human sensitivities, emotions, and affectivities. We will highlight the dialectic in the (...)

    The paper examines the place of Veṅkaṭaramaṇa Bhāgavatar, Kavi Veṅkaṭasūri, and Nāyakī Svāmikaḷ —three nineteenth-century figures—in the Saurashtra reimagining of the history of the South Indian music tradition. Worshiped as the mummūrti, these three poet/saint/musicians are regarded by the Saurashtra community of Madurai as the alternative to the deified figures of Tyāgarāja, Muttusvāmi Dīkṣitar, and Śyāma Śāstri, canonical to the South Indian classical music tradition as it develops in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Engaging with recent scholarship on (...)
