This book critically assesses the contributions of the country's leading academic philosophers by analysing the strengths and limitations that characterize the practice of philosophy in India. It focuses on their discussions of modernity, colonialism, classical Indian philosophy, and modern Western philosophy. Divided into three sections, the first discusses the works of Krishna Chandra Bhattacharyya and Akeel Bilgrami, and their project of offering Indian solutions to Western philosophical problems. The second part deals with Daya Krishna's attempts to engage traditional Indian philosophy in a dialogue with Western philosophy and Satchidananda Murty's assessment of the state of philosophy in Indian universities. The author argues how both failed to look at the works of Vivekananda, Aurobindo, and Gandhi, who had more successfully engaged with their predecessors as well as 'outsiders'. Finally, the book explores the attempts to absorb Buddhism into Hinduism in the works of Ananda K. Coomaraswamy and S. Radhakrishnan, as well as the counter arguments posed by Ambedkar and T.R.V. Murty. The debates highlighted in this book will make the reader aware of the structures and paradigms of philosophy as practised in India.

Book Description Oxford University Press, 2013. Hardcover. Condition: New. How can philosophy accomplish the mission that Bhattacharyya evokes of modern India? In exploring answers to this fundamental question, Philosophy and India critically assesses the contributions of seven of the country`s leading twentieth-century academic philosophers? Krishna Chandra Bhattacharyya, Akeel Bilgrami, B. K. Matilal, Daya Krishna, Satchidananda Murty, Ananda K. Coomaraswamy, and Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan?along with counterarguments posed by B. R. Ambedkar and T. R. V. Murti. This work evaluates how Indian philosophers have reflected on the various aspects of modernity and colonialism, and have sought to address problems of modern Indian philosophy in the contexts of both classical Indian philosophy and modern Western philosophy. It further delves into the relationship between Hinduism and Buddhism, and the connotations derived from the epic Mahabharata, as articulated by modern Indian philosophers. In the process, the book reveals the state of academic philosophy in India, and the nature of engagement of modern philosophers with their ancestors, `outsiders`, and their predecessors. Providing unique and powerful insights into understanding the tension between the past and present, the modern and pre-modern, Indian texts and the Western enterprise of philosophy, the book reinvigorates the relationship between philosophy and India and facilitates the possibility of further discussion and debate in the area.
