The philosophy of a country is the essence of its culture and civilization. It springs from ideas that prevail in its atmosphere and bears its unconscious stamp. For over 3000 years there has been an uninterrupted culture in India. We have the great songs of the Vedas, the splendour of the Upanishads, the glory of the Bhagavad-Gita, the vastness of the Mahabharata, the tenderness and heroism found in the Ramayana, the wisdom of the fables and stories in India, the scientific philosophy of Sankhya, the psychological philosophy of Yoga, the poetical philosophy of Vedanta, the laws of Manu, the Dhamma of Buddha, the Triratnas of Jains, the grammar of Panini , the core nationalism of Kautilya ,the lyrical poetry and drama cultivated in the great works of Kalidasa. The writings, in which classical Indian thoughts based on, are most of them written in Sanskrit language except for those of modern period. Classical Indian thoughts are very pluralistic with diverse schools, systems, languages and religions that flourished on the Indian soil for millennia.

Recent years have seen the beginning of a radical reassessment of the philosophical literature of ancient and classical India. The analytical techniques of contemporary philosophy are being deployed towards fresh and original interpretation of the texts. This rational, rather than mystical approach towards Indian philosophical theories have resulted in a need to work which explain afresh its central methods, courses and devices. To celebrate World Philosophy Day to commemorate the birth anniversary of Socrates as declared by UNESCO the present seminar  is a significant step on this part because it recognizes the potentials of classical Indian tradition and its vast wisdom to contribute in all realms of life.


We have identified the following sub-themes for an in-depth understanding under the proposed seminar:

  • Historical Development of Classical Indian Thoughts
  • Ecological Aspects of Vedic Literature
  • Socio-Political Philosophy in Ramayana
  • Ethical Teachings in Mahabharata
  • Psycho-Spiritual Approaches to Upanishads
  • Social Welfare in Srimad Bhagavad -Gita
  • Development of Indian Logic
  • Development of Natural Philosophy in Indian Thoughts
  • Linguistic Approach in Indian Philosophy
  • Indian Value System: Theory & Practice


Research papers are invited from faculty and research scholars on the thrust area of the Seminar or any other related topic with an abstract of 200 words latest by 20 November, 2010 by surface mail or e-mail to dr.sirswal@gamil.com.

Address for Correspondence:
