Debates in Indian Philosophy: Classical, Colonial and Contemporary

A. Raghuramaraju (Author)

This volume traces the impact of colonialism and Western philosophy on the dialogical structure of Indian thought and highlights the general tendency in contemporary Indian philosophy to avoid direct dialogue as opposed to the rich and elaborate debates that formed the pivot of the classical Indian tradition. It identifies three possible areas of debate: between Swami Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi; V.D. Savarkar and Mahatma Gandhi; and Sri Aurobindo and Krishna Chandra Bhattacharyya—on state and pre-modern society, religion and politics, and science and spiritualism respectively. This book will be of considerable interest not only to students and scholars of Indian philosophy and religious studies but to scholars of politics and sociology as well. This volume] discusses the state of contemporary Indian philosophy...takes on the colossal task of surveying the contemporary scene both within the discipline of philosophy and outside it.
