    J.L. Mehta on Heidegger, Hermeneutics, and Indian Tradition.William J. Jackson (ed.) - 1992 - Brill.
    In these essays, J.L. Mehta, Indian philosopher in whose life and work East and West met profoundly, reflects on the origins and potency of modern hermeneutics and phenomenology, and applies the principles of interpretation to Hindu traditions. These farseeing essays show a hopeful way for non-Western cultures to gain insight into the basic presuppositions of the Western world, and to reclaim their own origins and ways of thinking, and to participate in an emerging planetary thinking.

    Heaven's Fractal Net: Retrieving Lost Visions in the Humanities.William Joseph Jackson - 2004 - Indiana University Press.
    "Fractal" is a term coined by mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot to denote the geometry of nature, which traces inherent order in chaotic shapes and processes. Fractal concepts are part of our emerging vocabulary and can be useful in identifying patterns of human behavior, culture, and history, while enhancing our understanding of the nature of consciousness. According to William J. Jackson, the more one studies fractals, the more apparent their connections to the humanities become. In the recursive patterns of religious music, in (...)

    Sincere Praise of Honest Sweat: Tirumalamba’s Varadambika Parinaya Campu and Pingali Surana’s Kalapurnodayam.William Joseph Jackson - 2018 - Journal of Dharma Studies 1 (1):69-83.
    I have gathered and studied these Sanskrit and Telugu writings by South Indian poets, and I’ve thought about them, and researched them for a few years. My highest priority in this piece is not to make the most simple literal word-for-word translation. I am trying not only to be faithful to the original texts, but to find a way in English to tell the detailed century-old stories more naturally, conveying them in a way that gives them a flow and literary (...)

    “Ever New Flights” of Creativity: Improvisation in South Indian Music.William J. Jackson - 2020 - Journal of Dharma Studies 3 (1):17-28.
    This inquiry explores the terms yogakshema, sampradaya, and manodharma sangita, as well as theories and practices of improvisation and innovation in music and other fields of Hindu culture. It considers the ways Hindu traditions play out the human contradiction—that life must always combine both old and new; the ways improvising is part of the Hindu frameworks in Vedic chanting, and the performance of ragas and other cultural activities in India. Both set patterns and nuanced interpretations in literary and musical works (...)
