From the Jacket

Among philosophers in India today, Professor K. Satchidananda Murty is in a class by himself. He is a heterodox thinker as well as a critical traditionalist. Few specialists in Advaita Vedanta have been so severely critical of it as he has been in his Revelation and Reason in Advaita Vedanta (1959), and few have presented such and admiring exposition of it as he has done in his Advaitic Notion {1985}. His interdisciplinary works on Indian culture and his contribution to peace studies, as well as his pioneering work Far Eastern Philosophers {1976}, contain original ideas, critical observations and insightful comparisons. Murty's writings range across Indian and western philosophy, covering ethics, religious studies, social and political thought, culture, peace studies, philosophy of education and Indian foreign policy. This volume contains interpretative and critical essays which evaluate the implicit or explicit assumptions, starting points, beliefs, arguments, conclusions, underlying theories, undercurrents of thought normative statements, and prescriptions of Murty's works, and develop them in alternative ways. The contributors comprise an international groups of philosophers from India, Russia, the USA and Japan.
