Philosophical Semi-colons is an attempt to provide alternative rational solutions to some of the ageold problems in philosophy. Readers will be quite amazed to read Prof Bandiste’s solutions as well as dissolutions. In some of them he has effected what can be called a Copernican revolution by showing that while people searched in vain for a solution in the objective factor it was actually existing in the subjective factor or the reverse. He is quite realistic as well as original at a number of places like: in finding freedom even in the deterministic context, in identifying the real nature of the moral doer and reaper, in his refutation of Hume, in his discovery of the nature of Truth, beauty and Goddness, in his discovery of a new inter-relationship among science, philosophy and religion, in locating subjectivity even in the absence of soul, and so on. He presents the philosopher in a new light in The Debt that a philosopher owed to society. Readers will find something novel in each one of the solutions provided by him At may places he disillusions us in a surprising way.Since Prof Bandiste believes that the real philosophy must be philosophy of life, his solutions are basically meant for bettering the qualitative aspect of life.Being rational also means being nearer to common-sense. This is how every well-meaning person, whether or not technically a student of philosophy, can understand the book and find it of much relevance.The lucid style of the book makes the whole reading easy and charming, and yet revealing and useful.
