Critical Rationality of the Buddhists and the Rationality of Science: a talk on Buddhism & Science at Choe Khor Sum Ling, Bangalore, on February 7, 2010

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Buddhist thought is characterized by centuries of critical thinking on issues related to the nature of reality, perception and inference (logic). Buddhist philosophy is defined by this special critical approach to the understanding of our experiences of the world. Buddhist logic is the first example of a methodology which attempts to ‘rationally’ understand the relation between the world and our descriptions of it, thus making it the first example of what later comes to be called scientific methodology. This discussion will explore the critical rational aspects of Buddhist philosophy in relation to how science itself uses the idea of the rational. In this exploration, we will discover that the Buddhist standards of rationality are in fact stricter than science – what consequence does this have on understanding the relation between the ‘rational’ and the ‘spiritual’?
Dr. Sundar Sarukkai, until recently, was a Professor of philosophy at the National Institute of Advanced Studies, Bangalore. He is now establishing the new Manipal Centre for Philosophy and Humanities at the Manipal University. One of his recent books titled “Indian Philosophy and Philosophy of Science” (Motilal Banarsidass, 2005) is an introduction to Buddhist logic and discusses in detail the relation between Buddhist logic and the philosophy of science.

BMTC has planned their first ever Bus Day on Thursday, Feb 4, 2010 with a particular focus on 2 corridors – Hosur Road and Old Airport road. The idea is to take the Bus on that day (if you aren’t already taking the company bus or any other bus) and see the difference it will make to traffic congestion and air quality. Vehicle speeds and emissions will be monitored on the corridors to quantify the difference in order to further encourage people to travel by public transport. The campaign is meant to create awareness interactively (as paper free as possible) through an electronic survey and by just taking the Bus!

The Bus Day team at BMTC has designed a short survey and the first way we can help is to fill in the survey online.
