About This Book

This book, on the philosophical contribution of Prof. K. Satchidananda Murty, critically examines his contribution to global under-standing of Indian ethos, philosophy and Vedànta. Dr Boaz explains that Murty has rightly interpreted Indian philosophy with reference to socio-political and physical conditions at different periods of Indian history.  
Boaz presents that for Murty, man in his existential condition and world of experience does not satisfy himself with what is around him or what he perceives with his senses. This impulse of man and his intellectual pursuit further lead to know things beyond, which results in metaphysics. Here one explores the profoundity of Murty's philosophy about man and the transcendent.
Prof. Murty's spectrum of philosophy is far and wide, and extends to the Far East. With his wide understanding, he also addresses the Indian spirit and tries to clarify certain misconceptions about Indian culture, ethos and history, and adopts a humanistic approach to the study of philosophy as a whole.
This book is of great reference value to the students and teachers of philosophy for it reveals the extraordinarily different perspective of Indian philosophy by a philosopher of our times.
