Peter Fredrick Strawson, Knighted for his contribution to philosophy, is one of the leading philosophers of our time. There is hardly any branch of philosophy to which he has not contributed significantly, and which has not been transformed by his work. The philosophy by P.F. Strawson is a tribute paid by Indian Council of Philosophical Research to this philosopher, who has influenced philosophic thinking as much in India as in any other part of world. The volume opens with a personal statement of his own philosophy made by Professor Strawson . This is followed by sixteen essays by eminent scholars from India , Britain and the USA, written especially for this volume on various aspects of Strawson's work, namely, philosophical Logic, philosophy of language, metaphysics, kant exegesis, theory of knowledge and moral philosophy. The rest of the volume consists of Strawson's reply to these essays, a bibliography of his writings, and a brief biographical note on the philosopher.
