Book Review: Virgin Gingelly: V Sanjay Kumar

Virgin Gingelly by V Sanjay Kumar is an amusing volume that deal with the relationship philosophy lived experience and the complex issues related to the analysis of the human universe and states strongly personological and neo-existentialist conception and deals with a vast horizon of problems but never generic, more rigorous but also clear and transparent and, above all, able to arouse in the reader genuine emotions and passions.

Particularly compelling in this book of philosophy is a discipline that in many of his canonical codifications often appears distant by the interests of humanity devoured, today as yesterday, from the worries of everyday life and tortured, in the best cases, the hot questions about the meaning of individual life and relationships towards the other, and the happiness of his poignant and elusive nature of rational and feeling passionate, the multiplicity of faces the ego and its constitutive ambiguity but not necessarily negative, complexity of existence and its metamorphic place in contexts of the world and in the seasons of time.

The first answer to the question above cannot emphasize on the one hand awareness with which the author captures precisely these questions that forms one of the essential foundations of the volume and on the other its ability to organize around them a reflection extremely rich in original designs and decided to go to the roots of certain nodes psycho-anthropological not so much to dissolve, but to enlighten them and rethink so always very stressing and persuasive.

The leave is to the analysis of the mental an sich, or rather from mentalism; the breakthrough would orient the student to the analysis of man. The aim is not to deny the central importance of corporeality or certain events endopsychic instead of analyzing the so-called mental experience in a perspective that includes all the components and the stresses without which it remains something abstract little more than a experimentum crucis.

It is precisely in the perspective opened up by this policy statement that proceeds much of the discourse. The contents of the book are many ranging from issues more properly theoretical and epistemological the question of realism and the charming motif of subjective point of view to issues of social and psycho-anthropological nature, in which, however, is never less cutting of the philosopher used to examine all relevant aspects of the world and to dispel the haze that often obscure the real problems to make it emerge from the last core properly human.

The ability to turn the questions apparently more rarefied in existential questions, never rhetorical questions in the meaning of life and the way of being and acting of those who experience is further enhanced by his expressive style, as you is mentioned at the beginning, extremely dense and nevertheless clear, burning every possible speculative hardness in the fire of a willingness to communicate happily realized.

For these reasons of clarity could it happen that a philosophy book has been read with an intense participation in its various arguments and theoretical proposals. They often have a different intonation now strictly theoretical, now expressed in the language of' esprit de finesse, now emerging from a confrontation with the experiences of other authors, philosophers and non-philosophers, near and far.

Among the pages most impressed the connections between philosophy and experience who refuse in a very persuasive speech every deprived from their matrices subjective, those, very timely, on the presence-absence of man and values in age of Weberian disenchantment, those that compare the existence with the complexity, the ambiguity, with the passion and happiness.

In this context emphasizes very well as the existence becomes a decisive figure in the philosophical-psychological contemporary, to the extent that it includes not only the subject-person but also the relationship dialectic between that person and their interpersonal context environment. It is also developing these themes then come to draw on relevant considerations very raison d'ĂȘtre of medicine and psychiatry.

Are among the most remarkable pages of the book those in which thematizes the deep sense of being-being-doctor and psychiatrist identifying in the way of acting of those who take care of suffering humanity. Moreover, precisely in the deciphering of the special meaning of suffering we must seize the primary task of hermeneutics committed universe of pain.

The time as a language does not speak much of temporality in and of itself, that does not speak much as it seems of himself talking, instead, the man and the manifold relate to things and events, to himself and to other men, to life and its future, the problem of where and whither assuming, of course, that these where there are, and why.

It is in relation to these and other assumptions that time can be considered suggestively as a Great Interpretation, or as a Grand Narrative, through which the human being tries to situate himself with greater awareness of the world and the disturbing dynamism time.

This in any case is a book that, beyond its deal with the complexity, and ambiguity, the existence and reality of pain and suffering, primarily marked by a deep passion for reflection and by an equally profound hope in life.
