Sri Aurobindo's insights on history and hermeneutics

At least four Bengali names are doing the rounds for the forthcoming Presidential election. But unfortunately no one has brought in the name of Prof. D.P. Chattopadhyaya so far, who so eminently deserves the honour.
His Ways of Understanding the Human Past (Centre for Studies in Civilisations 2001 New Delhi Pp. 164) is an anchor for hermeneutics which defies all the 20th century fads and seeks to endorse many of the insights of Sri Aurobindo on the matter. A must read. [TNM]
