Lokāyata: Journal of Positive Philosophy

The Center for Positive Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies (CPPIS) starts a bi-annual interdisciplinary journal from 2011. The name Lokāyata can be traced to Kautilya’s Arthashastra, which refers to three ānvīkikīs (logical philosophies), Yoga, Samkhya and Lokāyata. Lokāyata here still refers to logical debate (disputatio, “criticism”) in general and not to a materialist doctrine in particular. The objectives of the journal are to encourage new thinking on concepts and theoretical frameworks in the disciplines of humanities and social sciences to disseminate such new ideas and research papers (with strong emphasis on modern implications of philosophy) which have broad relevance in society in general and man’s life in particular. The Centre will publish two issues of the journal every year. Each regular issue of the journal will contain full-length papers, discussions and comments, book reviews, information on new books and other relevant academic information. Each issue will contain about 100 Pages.         

Theme of Present Issue:

Concept of Mind (Manas) and Intelligence (Buddhi) in Indian Philosophy
