Advaita Vedânta is by far the most well-known philosophical tradition of India, and yet, because of its fame, it has been paradoxically misunderstood in modernity. Too often today, the teachings of Advaita Vedânta are mixed with those of the Sâmkhya-Yoga but also with those of the various Neo-Vedântic schools that have flourished both in India and in the West and which are characterized by religious syncretism and a tendency to reduce Moksha to the pursuit of modified states of consciousness.
What are the metaphysical and epistemological principles of Advaita Vedânta? What are its scriptural foundations, its main teachers and doctrinal tendencies? What is the method of Advaita Vedânta and how does its understanding of non-duality make it unique among the wisdom traditions of both India and the world? How was it received (and sometimes distorted) in the West since the colonial period? How to distinguish between Vedânta and neo-Vedânta? Is it possible to build bridges between Advaita Vedânta and Modern Science?
These are some of the questions that we intend to address in the fourth issue of Aditi.
Articles can be submitted for review in French or English. The fourth issue of Aditi will be published in French and English articles will be translated into French.
