Laymans Introduction to Philosophy and Life

B.N. Bahuguna (Author)
Synopsis This is the age of novels. They dominate the world of books. The novels have become the craze of the youth and hence the book market is flooded with fiction. It is very seldom that brilliant works of nonfiction make their appearance. Layman's Introduction to Philosophy and Life marks a departure from this trend. It is a brilliant effort of an octogenarian writer who, though he describes himself as a rank layman is a lover of philosophy and his abiding interest in the subject, even at this advance age, is visible on each page of the book. This yardstick of a great book has been laid down by Jean De La Bruyere who says, 'When a book raises your spirit and inspires you with noble and manly thoughts, seek no other test of its excellence, it is good and made by a good workman' and there is no doubt that this book amply qualifies for the test of a great book laid down by Bruyere. According to Upanishadic sages, 'deathless joy abides in what is great. There is not joy in things small and petty'. This is no exaggeration to say that books of this kind strengthen the mind and elevate the soul of the readers who will discover this truth as they go through the book. The book consists of Two Parts. Part-I gives an eye-view of the unlimited empire of Philosophy, both Western and Eastern (India). It encapsulates the lasting wisdom of philosophy's leading minds, both of the past and also the present. It testifies the definition of a writer 'as a bee which collects from each source the nectar the humanity so badly needs'. Part-II describes a man's Odyssey on our planet, Earth, and his life's vicissitudes from the cradle to the grave. What is the need for a study of life? To quote author's words from the Preface of the book: 'Life is the workshop of Philosophy hence a study of life is imperative for the study of Philosophy'. The Publishers feel immense pleasure to place this book in the hands of the readers. It contains something of every thing useful and interesting to men and women of all ages and of all professions. It provides food for thought alike for a boy, a youth, a student, teacher, an old man, a philosopher, a businessman, parents, writers and others as it is bound to benefit each and every one of them. It would be a proud acquisition by all libraries-private and public and it should find a permanent place in the personal bookshelves of all book-lovers.
