View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Contemporary Indian Philosophy has arisen in awareness of the need to reconcile the forces of tradition with those of modernity. It is not merely repetitive. It develops under the conviction that the basic aim of Philosophy is to cultivate a world-view. This requires an awareness of the existential condition of life as also the consciousness of life's ultimate ideal, viz., redemption, not only of the individual, but of the total human race. It emphasises the ultimacy of spiritual values; yet it demonstrates that the roots of spiritual life lie in conditions that are essentially existential. The present study is an attempt to re-think, in an academic manner, the thoughts of the contemporary thinkers, Swami Vivekananda, Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Sri Aurobindo, Krishna Chandra Bhattacharya, S. Radhakrishnan, and Mohammad Iqbal. Different aspects of their thoughts have been systematised, categorised and placed under suitable philosophical heads in this work.

About the Author:

The late Sri, Basant Kumar Lal was recently Professor of Philosophy at Magadh University, Bodh Gaya, India. He has written extensively on Philosophy of Religion, metaphysics, Epistemology, Social and Political Thought and History of Philosophy.

Review:

''This work is a good survey of the thinkers presented. The author has given a good account of each and a brief bibliography for each at the end of the book. The volume could serve as a good introductory text for a course on modern Indian thought and is recommended to the student in Indian thought.'' - --L. Thomas O'Neil
