Description

This volume is a collection of twenty-one papers presented at an International Seminar attended by thirteen scholars from overseas and ten from India, besides a number of notable scholars who took part in the discussions as observers.

How do we know? This seemingly simple question has aroused the interest of numerous philosophers of East and West from ancient times down to the present, and innumerable answers have been given. Because of the wide interest in this vital question, a - 5 day international seminar was organized by the Ramakrishna Mission with a view to help narrow the wide gap of misunderstanding on this subject between modern philosophers of East and West.

Prof. DasGupta in his paper 'Swami Vivekananda's Concept of Knowledge' discussed Western epistemology comparing it with Swami Vivekananda's views. The editors decided that because of the paper's relevance to the subject of the Seminar, it would be a fitting introduction to this volume. Therefore it has become the Foreword to this book.
