This paper deals with the semantics and aporia of prakriti (matter/female) and purusa (consciousness/male) by analyzing the discourse on Samkhya darsana. The goal of the the paper is to understand the uncontradictory contradictions and decidable undecidable facts of Samkhya darsana’s concept of corporeal in the public sphere discourse as well as intellectual commentaries. Deconstructive grammatological (non-)methodologies are deployed along with Indian & Greek methods of establishing dialogue without manipulation.
