The Inner World is an inquiry into the development of Indian identity. It examines the network of social roles, traditional values, and customs with which the threads of Indian psychological development are interwoven. In doing so, it reveals important aspects of Indian society, myths, rituals, fables, and arts. Hailed by critics from all over the world as the best application of psychoanalysis to Indian culture, this third edition includes an Afterword by Kakar. The Inner World will appeal equally to scholars of social psychology, cultural studies, anthropology, and sociology, as well as general readers interested in the psychology of Indian imagination.
