About the Book:

This collection includes twenty-five essays written by G. R. Malkani during 1923-66 on various topics in hard core philosophy. The reader will judge whether these essays express one single and coherent outlook towards different philosophical problems and whether that single outlook can be identified as Advaitic. In the larger context of the encounter between the Indian traditions of thought and those of the West, this collection provides a basis to judge whether and to what extent the twentieth-century Vedanta is continuation of its classical and medieval heritage. Malkani's exposition of the classical Advaita Vedanta in terms of the Hegelian idealism with its interpretative openness, creates many apparent similarities between the Hegelian and the Advaita philosophies. Essays included in this volume would enable the reader to undertake an in-depth survey of the implicit continuities from Sankara to Hegel.

About the Author:

G. R. Malkani (1892-1977) in one of the eminent Indian philosophers of the recent past. As the Director of the erstwhile Indian Institute of Philosophy at Amalner, and also as the Editor of the Philosophical Quarterly, he has contributed, along with his contemporaries, viz., K. C.
Bhattacharyya, Ras Vihari Das, T. R. V. Murti, D. M. Datta, P. T. Raju, and other, in important measure towards the building of philosophical activity in India. As an ardent exponent of the metaphysics of the Non-duality of Brahman, Malkani has substantially contributed to the twentieth-century understanding of the classical Advaita Vedanta.

Sharad Deshpande (b.1949) is a Reader in the Department of philosophy, Pune University, and Associate Editor, Indian philosophical Quarterly.
