The Human Search: Issues in Philosophical Anthropology: This book on Philosophical Anthropology is a critical and creative reflection on the nature, goal and capability and destiny of human persons. Borrowing insights from traditional philosophy, Indian tradition and Christian vision, this book attempts to understand human beings as a basic openness to realities larger than themselves. In this ever-receding horizon that we are, some of the fundamental questions are: Who are we? “Are we really free?” “Can only human love?” and “What can we really hope for before and after death”? The tentative and open-ended answers we arrive at are: Our basic human nature transcends itself at every moment. We have traces of freedom that make us unique and provides us with dignity. We can love, however limited our love may be and that gives meaning to life. We can hope for life after death, but we cannot understand it. This book is a modest and tentative attempt to respond to (not answer) these fundamental questions concerning human beings.
