Quantity:

The volume felicitates and honours the scholarly achievements of Dr. Jayasankar Lal Shaw, one of the significant stalwarts of Indian and comparative philosophy in the contemporary analytical context. The volume includes essays from some of the leading philosophers and logicians, such as Max Cresswell, Paul Gochet and Mihir Chakraborty, and others, representing four continents.

J.L. Shaw has explored and reflected on a range of important topics, such as knowledge, belief, doubt, cognition, perception, causality, number, meaning, subject-predicate, harmony and freedom. His interpretation of the Nyaya concept of negation and double negation, indexicals, semantic meaning, and the other topics have been discussed and responded to in the essays collected for this volume.

Through a sustained comparative analysis drawing on classical Indian perspectives, solutions have been argued for; and this method can be utilized for solving some of the problems of Westerns philosophy of language, logic, and epistemology, as Dr. Shaw has ably demonstrated in his own works over some four decades. He received his PHD from Rice University (USA) in 1969.This volume should prove useful for undergraduates, graduates and professionals in philosophy ands East-West thinking.
