Sixth Daya krishana Memorial Lecture

ON Love, Law and Language: Continuing to think with Daya-ji

to be delivered by Professor Jay L Garfield

Abstract of the lecture

In one of the last essays that he brought to completion, Eros, Nomos, and Logos, Daya-ji revisits many of the themes that animate his philosophical thought, drawing them together iAn a stunning philosophical farewell. He focuses on what he calls time and again “the prison-house of I-centricity,” and the need for escape; on the tension between apparent human freedom and the determinism we imbibe with the scientific image; on the nature of creativity and our essentially social nature, but also on the consequences of human embodiment and the role of the puruṣārthas in human life. I often find myself returning to this beautiful essay in part because it draws so many of these themes together, but also because it reflects both Daya-ji’s greatest insights and some of the obstacles to bringing those insights to complete fruition in his philosophical project. As always when I read Daya-ji, I imagine his voice behind the words, and then the argument that would ensue over drinks, and the joy in philosophical discourse. Today, I would like to respond to this essay, engaging in just that dialogue with the Daya I remember and imagine before me.
