Sri Aurobindo's philosophy of integralism is unique in Indian philosophy. It is integral for two reasons: it not only comprehends the whole of reality, but also integrates the lower levels of experience into the higher. If reality is integral, the knowledge required for realizing it must also be integral. Since the means must be appropriate to the end, the discipline that it formulated by Sri Aurobindo for achieving the goal is integral yoga which brings about the ascent of consciousness leading to the realization of the cosmic Self as well as the descent of consciousness leading to the divinization of nature. The work of perfected beings whom Sri Aurobindo calls Gnostic beings in bringing about this transformation of society is decisive. This volume highlights the contribution of Sri Aurobindo to Indian philosophy elucidating the salient features of his epistemology and metaphysics, social philosophy and integral yoga.
