Message from Head

      Philosophy has been hailed as the mother of all disciplines in both east and west and at the same time it is also the ultimate culmination of all sciences. A subject with a history of more than three thousand years has more relevance in present age than ever. Traditional treasures of Metaphysics, Epistemology, Mathematical Logic, Linguistics, Moral and Mental Philosophy must be explored in order to comprehend the evolution of civilization; equally if not more important is the fact that Philosophy has stable remedy for all contemporary problems faced by humanity.

      The department has long held the leadership of philosophical dialogue and dialectic in the country with a galaxy of scholars and philosophers of international repute. It might not be an exaggeration to say that stream of Comparative Philosophy, with innovative tools like Jaipur Experiment, largely developed from the department. The department, which happens to be one of the four UGC Centres of Advanced Studies in Philosophy, countrywide, holds equal expertise in both Classical Indian Philosophy and Western Philosophy. The department offers a great opportunity to any aspirant of higher research in traditional as well as recent areas of the subject-and so to those who seek to contemporize the timeless insights of the subject.

      On the behalf of this historic department, I extend my warm welcome to all its virtual visitors.
