Dear colleagues and honorable friends,
Greetings and good wishes from the Phenomenology fraternity!
I am glad to inform you that Center for Phenomenological Studies, after successfully organizing two seminars, Life-world and Consciousness in Chennai in March 2016 and Phenomenology of Myths and Rituals in ICPR Lucknow in April 2016, will be organizing a two-day workshop on Perspectives in Consciousness—Edmund Husserl and Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry in association with Sri Aurobindo Center for Advanced Research (SACAR) on 21 and 22 June 2016. As we could not get a sponsor, this will be a self-financed programme. The brochure of the programme can be seen in our Center’s web site. It will give you all details. Please check our web site http://www.phenomenology.in/index.php/cps1
for further information. I humbly and earnestly request you to send as many students as possible to participate in the programme. As you know well the phenomenological method is applicable not only in philosophy but also in several social sciences such as sociology, history, literature, psychology, anthropology, religious studies and the like. This being the case, please inform teachers of other departments and students of other disciplines encouraging them to attend our course. It may also be noted that we make available opportunities for paper presentation in the workshop and accordingly certificates will also be issued. It may also be noted that SACAR conducts many programmes on a regular basis based on Sri Aurobindo’s philosophy and teachings. Our workshop will give you an opportunity to participate in such programme as well. All said and done our programme looks good and please make use of it for your academic progress. Kindly circulate this letter to as many teachers and students as possible. In case you need any further clarification, please write to me: ashishantony@yahoo.comor call me on cell 0-9500578132.
Thanking you and with warm personal regards,
Yours sincerely,
V. C. Thomas
