Civilizations is a tome of rich philosophical discourse borne out of years of reflection and investigation by Daya Krishna, one of the foremost philosophers of twentieth-century India. The book is an engaging and thought-provoking philosophical account that demonstrates that critical inquiry is an ongoing process with strains of continuity and evolution.

Krishna′s discourses in this volume span a range of inquiries―parallels between Indian and Western civilizations; interconnection between action and knowledge; anatomies of the profound and the profane, the ideal and the actual; and other such intriguing lines of philosophical questioning.

About the Author:

Daya Krishna (1924–2007) was one of the most original minds of contemporary India. He served as pro–Vice Chancellor of Rajasthan University, and was a trailblazer in juxtaposing Indian and Western philosophies and opening up new vistas of thought. He was given the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Indian Council for Philosophical Research.

An interdisciplinary thinker and a prolific writer, Daya Krishna has authored numerous works, a partial list of which includes Prolegomena to Any Future Historiography of Culture and Civilizations (2005); Developments in Indian Philosophy from the Eighteenth Century Onwards (2001); New Perspectives in Indian Philosophy (2000); Bhakti: A Contemporary Discussion (2000); History, Culture and Truth (1999); The Problematic and Conceptual Structure of Classical Indian Thought about Man, Society and Polity (1996); Indian Philosophy: A Counter Perspective (1991, 1996,2006).
