Professor Daya Krishna has, over the last four decades of this century, written extensively on the relations between logic and empirical reality, the nature of philosophy and the art of philosophizing, the problem of freedom and its relation to values, analysed issues in social and political philosophy, and put forward a new counter perspective on Indian philosophy. In this volume, his ideas and writings are subjected to close critical scrutiny some of the foremost philosophers of India, such as J.N. Mohanty, D.P. Chattopadyaya, Sibajiban Bhattacharyya, P.K. Sen. K.J. Shah, Yashdev Shalya, N.S. Dravid. The  detailed reply by Professor Daya Krishna to each of them turns the volume into a philosophical debate on these issue in contemporary India.
