About the First Session of SPPIS,Haryana
The 150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) will be celebrated all over the world during 2012-13. First Session of SPPIS, Haryana focuses on contemporary Indian philosophy. In the 19th century Mother India gave the birth to some bright Stars, of course, not in the sky, but on her soil. They were luminaries in their respective fields. Rabindranath Tagore, Keshab Chandra Sen, Acharya Prafulla Chandra Roy, Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose, Raja Rammohan Roy, Iswarchandra Vidyasagar, Ramakrishna Paramhansa, Mahatma Gandhi, Lokmanya Tilak, Bipin Chandra Pal, Swami Vivekananda and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose are some of the most revered personalities of that century. In this regard the CentreforPositivePhilosophyandInterdisciplinaryStudies (CSPPIS), Pehowa (Kurukshetra) devoted its first session on contemporary Indian philosophy.
In the last decays, a number of monographs on the history of Indian philosophy have been published. Of the books by Indian authors, the following are worthy of notice, first and foremost: the two volume Indian Philosophy by Dr .Sarvepalli Radhakrishanan, the former President of the Republic of Indian, A History of Indian Philosophy by Surendrantha Dasgupta; Suryanarayana Sastry’s Short History of Indian Materialism in Sanskrit; Hiriyanna’s Outlines of Indian Philosophy; An Introduction to Indian Philosophy by S.Chatterjee and D. Datta; A History of Indian Philosophy by Ram Mohan Roy and many more treatises on contemporary Indian philosophy too. The common feature of these works is that they are all written form the positions of idealist interpretation of history and are limited to the ancient, medieval and modern periods of the history of Indian philosophy. The situation is the same in the works of the Western historians of philosophy, where the whole of the history of Indian philosophy is essentially reduced to the history of the three unorthodox and six orthodox systems. Our attempt is to make a critical evaluation of all philosophers with their main issues or trends of philosophical speculations in contemporary times whether they are academicians or non-academicians.
Main Features of the Session:
It is neither easy nor impossible to translate into action all noble goals set forth by the eminent thinkers and scholars, but we might try to discuss and propagate their ideas.

These are the main features of this event:
