Book Description

Readers acquainted with the Journal of Indian Council of Philosophical Research (JICPR) may be familiar with the regular features entitled 'Agenda for Research', 'Focus' and 'Notes and Queries' appearing in that Journal. Items published under these headings are of great interest for those who want to carry on research in philosophy. We have been able to collect material upto the volume 21. By the time the script was to go to print volume 22-24 also appeared. Hence, material from volumes 22-24 and onward is placed in an appendix. For the queries still awaiting answers, readers are requested to keep abreast with the coming issues of the journal.

I am thankful to Dr. Yogesh Gupta, Co-ordinator ASIHSS, Head, Department of Philosophy, University of Rajasthan for entrusting the work of editing this volume to me. I am further grateful to her for writing a comprehensive introduction in this volume helping me in going through the whole script We are also grateful to (late)Dr. Daya Krishna, Editor of JICPR for permitting us to use the material from the Journal for this work.lt is our ill luck that the book was not ready while he lived.

Shri D.D.Mathur helped me with most of the material used here. Shri Sapan Khandelwal of Literary Circle is bringing out this volume and we thank him for his interest.


If one goes through any of the writings of the late Prof. Daya Krishna (September 17, 1924 October 5, 2007), and recalls an informal discussion with him or any of the lectures given by him, one can prepare a list of themes for research in the subject in addition to those writings which he had published under the three sections AGENDA FOR RESEARCH, FOCUS, NOTES AND QUERIES (ARFNQ) of the Journal of Indian Council of Philosophical Research (JICPR). The present work Agenda for Research In Indian and Western Philosophy is a compilation of his complete writings published under the above mentioned sections/headings, which were introduced by him in his editorship of the Journal. He worked for JICPR as an editor till the last day of his life, which showed his unparalleled commitment to the Journal. The Department of Philosophy, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur is indebted to Prof. Daya Krishna, who was one of the builders of the Department and made it known in the realm of philosophy in the country and outside country. The Department was fortunate to receive his consent-letter, placed here, to re-publish the writings appeared in the Journal under the above mentioned headings.

The present work, which is the second publication of Prof. Daya Krishna writings from this Department, was planned to be published on the occasion of the Diamond Jubilee year of the University of Rajasthan (2007-2008) under the UGC's X Plan Programme of Assistance for Strengthening of Infrastructure for Humanities and Social Sciences (ASIHSS). The Department received this programme for a period of three years (2004-2007) under the Headship of Prof. V.S. Shekhawat and the Vice-chancellorship of Prof. K.L. Sharma. But the work could not be published on that occasion due to some technical reasons. However, the work is being published in the Diamond jubilee year of the establishment of the Department of philosophy in Rajasthan and in the Golden jubilee year of the establishment of the same in Jaipur. The First publication of Prof. Daya Krishna writing under this UGC programme was published in an academic year 2006-2007 as a collection of Prof. Daya Krishna's published and unpublished articles written in Hindi in a book form entitled Bharatyia Evam Pashchatya Darsanic Paramparaein. The present book Agenda for Research In Indian and Western Philosophy initially was conceived as a compilation of the material appeared in volume X (1) (Vol. X, No.1), (Sep-Dec., 1992) of the Journal to the complete issues of volume XXI (Sep-Dec, 2004), appeared in 2006, in the main text of the book as from Volume X( I ), (Sep.-Dec., 1992) of the Journal the first section Notes and Queries was introduced. The material of the two issues of the next volume i.e., Vol. XXII, which appeared during 2006-2007, was intended, by me, to be given in Appendix 1 as the way they are given in Journal. Meanwhile, remaining issues of Vol. XXII with completed issues of Vol. XXIII, and Vol. XXIV (1) have also appeared. The related contents from these volumes too had to be added in Appendix 1. However, besides some minor changes regarding the additions of the contents, from missing back volumes of the Journal and the material scattered in sections other than ARFNQ sections, in the four chapters the structure of the present work which now consisting of : introduction, preface, a word with the researchers, and 4 chapters with two appendices, as planned in the beginning, remained same. The material appeared in volume X to XXI under ARFNQ, as initially planned by Dr R.S.Bhatnagar are rearranged into four chapters and form the main text of the present work. These four chapters are titled as: Agenda for Research; Queries with Answers; Issues and Information in Focus and Queries Awaiting Answers. Here the items appeared in the Journal under the section NQ are splitted in two chapters; chapter two and chapter four. Similarly, few items appeared under Agenda for Research or under other sections of the Journal are placed under different sections and chapters according to the contents. These changes, with other changes, are marked in this work with the signs such as [Al, *, ••, •••; +; ; QAA(Queries Awaiting Answers).
