From the Jacket
Jitendranath Mohanty is one of the leading philosophers of the Indian sub-continent. Known equally for his path-breaking contributions in the field of phenomenology, and insightful undertakings in the field of Indian philosophy, particularly Nyaya, Mohanty has striven not only to extend the frontiers of philosophical thought in new directions, but also to build bridges of understanding between the Anglo-American and the European schools of contemporary philosophy.
The essays in the present volume subject his contributions in various fields of philosophy to a searching examination, which is both sympathetic and critical at the same time. Some of the most fundamental and deep-rooted tensions and dilemmas in the field of phenomenology and Indian philosophy are brought to light in the course of the discussion by such well-known authorities as Karl H. Potter, Bimal K. Matilal, William k. Mckenna and R. A. Mall, among others, Mohanty's Reply to many of the criticisms and observations made in the course of these articles will remain of interest to all serious students of phenomenology and Indian philosophy, for a long time to come.
The volume on the philosophy of Professor J. N. Mohanty was
conceived as a part of the exercise to awaken interest in the work
of contemporary Indian thinkers in the field of philosophy, to
subject their work to a critical scrutiny and to persuade the thinker to
creatively respond to this criticism. The enterprise itself was part
of a wider concern that for certain reasons, both the past and the
present traditions of philosophizing in India had ceased to be matters
of living interest to the philosophical community in the country.
