Sri Aurobindo too manicured away many 'awkward' historical facts

[Sri Aurobindo idealized ancient India in a similar way as Heidegger did the ancient Greeks. However with respect to the Enlightenment tradition although Aurobindo critiques its rational foundations he does show a respect for the values of the Enlightenment (Liberty, Equality, Fraternity) and does seem to adopt its progressive view of civilization. by Tony Clifton on Sat 17 Oct 2009 04:06 PM PDT Profile Permanent Link Re: John D.

Sri Aurobindo too manicured away many 'awkward' historical facts from his narratives, as critiqued by D. P. Chattopadhyaya in Sri Aurobindo and Karl Marx. [TNM]
