About the Book :
This monograph intends to highlight Professor P.T. Raju's contribution to Indian philosophy in general and Advaita in particular. Raju is regarded as one of the architects and disseminators of Indian philosophy in the contemporary philosophical scene. This work covers a wide range of philosophical issues discussed by Raju in his writings concerning the nature of Indian philosophy, Comparative philosophy, and Advaita. His corpus of writings exhibits the richness of Indian philosophy, culture and heritage. His approach to Indian philosophy is an eye opener to those who look down upon it as a form of religious occultism and mysticism. Raju vindicates that there is as much metaphysics, epistemology and logic in Indian philosophy as it is found in its Western counterpart. His commitment to Advaita is not a blind one. He is fully convinced that the arguments advanced by the Advaitins in support of their position are not dogmatic but logical in their nature. Raju critically examines other systems of philosophy, both Eastern and Western, from the standpoint of Advaita.
