(VOLUME THREE)
PROBLEMS OF INDIAN PHILOSOPHY
Edited by
S.P. DUBEY


The series entitled Facets of Recent Indian Philosophy   is a collection of addresses delivered by eminent Indian philosophers as  General Presidents in the annual sessions of the Indian Philosophical Congress since its inception in 1925. The need to collect all the available addresses was felt several years ago. Most of them could be obtained. excluding a few , they have now been arranged thematically in three volumes containing seventeen addresses each:

Volume 1 : The Metaphysics of the Spirit ;  

Volume 2 : Indian Philosophy and History ;

Volume 3 : Problems of Indian Philosophy.

The addresses included in Volume 3 deal with some of the major and perennial problems of philosophy in general and of Indian philosophy in particular. Thus ,problems of ego, fear, sorrow, violence, peace, freedom, time and the like, have received focal attention. Some of the addresses discuss temporal and social issues, such as unity in diversity , dogmatism , ecology and the malady of the age. Viewed together , they evince a philosopher’s concern with eternal , as well as immediate, problems and their eagerness to solve them by making sincere and effective efforts.

These volumes will undoubtedly prove to be very useful to researchers and students of contemporary Indian philosophy as they give a good idea of the direction in which twentieth- century Indian philosophy has been moving since the mid-thirties.
