History

 The Indian Civilization, Like All Other Civilizations, Settled Or Nomadic, Developed Some Basic Concepts To Define Their Relations With Nature And Organize Their Collective Life. There Is A Widespread Belief In Some Countries, Particularly The West, That India'S Intellectual Tradition Has Been Mainly Metaphysical And Religious. That This View Is Substantially Mistaken And That India, Together With Its Philosophical And Religious Traditions, Consciously Developed A Scientific Tradition Has Been Shown By Late Pranab Kumar Sen And His Colleagues In This Volume. Categories And Concepts Used In Philosophical And Scientific Disciplines Have Their Refined Implications Which Are Articulated Only In Well-Defined And In Exact Ideas. The Editors Of And Contributors To This Volume Have Taken The Necessary Pains To Explicate The Abstract Concepts In Relatively Simple Ways, Trying To Bring Them Close To The World Of Our Experience. While Indian Philosophers Are Not Averse To Abstract And Subtle Thinking, They Are Generally Disposed To Relate The Same To The World Of Ordinary Experience For The Sake Of Easy Intelligibility. A Close Reading Of The Papers Contributed To The Volume Makes It Clear That The Basic Themes Of Indian Systems Of Philosophy Have Been Open-Ended And Interactive With Their Counterparts As Available In Other Civilizations And Systems Of Thought And Action. The Introduction To This Volume Would Help The Reader To Follow The Contents And The Structure Of The Work. Students, Researchers And The General Public Are Bound To Find This Volume Very Interesting And Instructive.
