Flowing effortlessly from Sudhir Kakar’s descriptions of his early life
in undivided India to discussions on the Indian psyche and sexuality,
India Analysed discusses Kakar’s views on secularism and modern
Indian leaders such as Gandhi and Nehru wherein he brings to bear
his intellect on a wide range of issues such as philosophy, Indian
culture and tradition, and the Partition, and, in doing so, reveals the
psychological make-up of the contemporary Indian.
Part of Ramin Jahanbegloo’s series of interviews with prominent
intellectuals who have influenced modern Indian thought, this candid
and freewheeling conversation demystifies many of the complex ideas
of the eminent psychoanalyst Sudhir Kakar.
Sudhir Kakar is a psychoanalyst, novelist, and
scholar in the fields of cultural psychology and the
psychology of religion.
Ramin Jahanbegloo, an Iranian philosopher,
currently teaches in the Department of Political
Science at York University.
