“Nature of Philosophy is a bilingual volume in English and Hindi. It talks about the varied problems of philosophy in terms of definition, philosophical thinking, and the relation between philosophy and language. Akin to any other discipline, in philosophy too, problems concerning it need to be analysed, clarified and resolved for a proper understanding and, it is the ultimate goal of this book. Herein, problems are made clear by analysis, questioning and critical method. The clarity thus achieved prompts us for philosophical reflection to the extent of removal of the problem and a discriminate understanding of the concept. It emphatically states that since philosophical problems are the objects of reflection, philosophical reflections aim at conceptual clarity by analysis, interpretation and wisdom. The question of any sort of risk against philosophy does not hold any merit. It is because philosophy fulfils human aspirations and truth of reasoning to confront with and reflect on problems to remove them. This book offers a thumbnail sketch of the varied problems of philosophy and proffers solutions to them in an efficacious manner.”
