JNU Vice-Chancellor Says Holistic Nature Of Knowledge Very Important, Indian Tradition Has Seen It

Jawaharlal Nehru University Vice-Chancellor Santishree Dhulipudi Pandit on Thursday said holistic nature of knowledge is very important, adding it was the Indian way of gaining knowledge. Addressing an event here, she contended that “we have come from a unique civilization where our narrative, unlike Abrahamic civilization, is feminist”. She was speaking at the valedictory session of a two-day seminar — Vishwa Guru Bharat: Exploring the Glorious Past, Promoting Present and the future Roadmap.

It was organized by the Akhil Bhartiya Rashtriya Shaikshik Mahasangh, in association with SVU and Sri Padmavati Mahila Viswavidyalayam. The session was also attended by Abhishek Tondon, the deputy director of ICSSR, and Alok Pandey, the national in charge of SHoDH. “Holistic nature of the knowledge is very important. There you would need a philosophy of knowledge of science and technology and a social construct.

Always see knowledge as holistic. This is the way Indian tradition has seen it. I want all of you to connect to that,” Pandit said. “We come from a unique civilization where our narrative unlike Abrahamic civilization is feminist. We have a concept of ‘ardhnarishwar’ where women and men are both equals. “We have a continuous civilization. Our tradition was scientific. We are not anti-science. We are not anti-science. Science technology, scientific temper is part of our tradition,” she added.
