The fifteen essays included in this volume celebrate three streams of knowledge-psychoanalysis, culture, and religion-and their confluence in Kakar's work. From the role of empathy in psychoanalysis, male-female relationships, and Indian sexuality to modern mysticism, religious conflict, Hindu
childhood, and the significance of imagination-these writings represent a breakthrough in Indian social consciousness and indigenous knowledge systems. In the Preface, Ramin Jahanbegloo looks at the depth and influence of Kakar's ideas, while the Introduction by Manasi Kumar critically comments on
how Kakar's ideas fit the larger context of psychoanalytic theory and culture. An interesting inclusion is a conversation between Sudhir Kakar and Madhu Sarin which explores the evolution of Kakar's relationship with psychoanalysis-from being influenced by psychoanalysis to playing a formative role
in the psychoanalytic culture in India.
