From Permanence to Process

(p.57) 2. From Permanence to Process
Enduring Colonialism

A. Raghuramaraju

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by exploring Chandidas' idea of contradictoriness. It discusses the two levels in Chandidas' metaphysical system, the ontic and ontological; what contradictoriness is and what it is not. It then considers another important idea namely, process, particularly the implications of accepting contradictoriness as the structural tinge of reality. Having explained various aspects of process, its beginninglessness, endlessness, multi-directionality, and intensification, Chandidas makes a philosophical retreat and comes back with another related term, that is almost identical with process, namely, fusion.

Keywords:   Vaddera Chandidas, contradictoriness, metaphysical system, ontic, ontological, process, reality, fusion
