    A Response to Prof. G. Vedaparayana’s Comments on My Paper “Wittgenstein’s Criticism of Moore’s Propositions of Certainty…”.Sambasiva Prasad Bandaru - 2020 - Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research 37 (1):159-165.
    “Moore–Wittgenstein controversy” on the problem of certainty should be understood and studied from two perspectives—one from philosophical use of ordinary language and the other from using ordinary language for normal linguistic exchange. To study it from one and only one perspective—either Moorean or Wittgensteinean—is narrow and biased. Looked at from the normal linguistic exchange, Wittgenstein’s arguments are convincing and Moore’s truisms seem rather odd. But when looked at from philosophical discourse and his defence of common sense, Moore’s truisms are interesting (...)

  2. Tagore on Religious Consciousness: A Study Based on the Letters Written to Indira Devi and Hemantabala Devi.Rachana Basu - 2020 - Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research 37 (1):3-17.
    The most of Tagore’s ideas expressed in his books and usual writings that draw attention by the Tagore’s scholars, a layman/woman cannot connect easily. The letters focused in this article are written in a simple language, though personal, rooted in daily experiences of Tagore himself—he shares in a very simple and lucid language. Often, the charges against Tagore’s philosophy are made that he is too idealistic and beyond realization. The paper attempts to argue based on these letters that his ideas (...)

    Concept of Alienation in Hegel’s Social Philosophy.Sujit Debnath - 2020 - Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research 37 (1):51-66.
    In this paper I made an attempt to discuss how the concept of alienation has been discussed in G.W.F. Hegel’s social philosophy. In Hegel’s philosophy, alienation is part of the process of self-creativity and self-discovery. According to Hegel, initially our consciousness is alienated from itself. It cannot understand its own true nature. In order to realize its own true nature consciousness’s needs to develop absolute knowledge. The development of consciousness’s absolute knowledge is possible through the overcoming of self-alienation of consciousness. (...)

  4. Revisiting Universals with Special Reference to Tropes.Bhumika Kanjilal - 2020 - Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research 37 (1):97-114.
    The main purpose of this paper is to uphold the very fact that there are many ways of understanding the concept Universal and also the several issues revolving round it but then the fundamental aim must be to free the ontology of any extra pressure. Thus, the prime aim of the paper is to exhibit the different ways in which discussions relating to Universals were usually dealt with. The thrust nevertheless lies on the reference of Tropes which is found to (...)

  5. Assimilation and Integration of Buddha Consciousness in the Cult of Lord Jagannātha.Sasmita Kar - 2020 - Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research 37 (1):67-82.
    Since time immemorial, Lord Jagannātha has been regarded as the principal deity of Odisha. The land of Odisha was a meeting place of the Hindus, Buddhists and Jainas. The Buddhists, Jainas, Vaiṣṇavas, the worshippers of Gaṇpati and others came to Purī and found the presence of their own lord in Jagannātha. However, of all religious creeds, Buddhism played an important role in the socio-cultural history of Odisha. During the period of emperor Aśoka, the Śabaras of Odisha were converted to Buddhism.

  6. Revisiting Hindu Nationalism: Perspective of Bankimchandra.Sujay Mondal - 2020 - Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research 37 (1):19-30.
    Bankimchandra was a stalwart in terms of his writings in the nineteenth-century Bengal. He was one of the pioneers of nationalism in India and a Hindu revivalist. Prior to the publication of his prose writings in the forms of novels, articles and essays, nationalism was not an Indian phenomenon. It had been imported from the West through English education. Such English education gave the Indians an exposure of utilitarianism and the ideologies of French Revolution. Bankimchandra’s political thought accords with the (...)

  7. Alan Turing’s Concept of Mind.Rajakishore Nath - 2020 - Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research 37 (1):31-50.
    In the mid of nineteenth century, the hypothesis, “machine can think,” became very popular after Alan Turing’s article on “Computing Machinery and Intelligence.” This hypothesis, “machine can think,” established the foundations of machine intelligence and claimed that machines have a mind. It has the power to compete with human beings. In the first section, I shall explore the importance of Turing thesis, which has been conceptualized in the domain of machine intelligence. Turing presented a completely different view of the machine (...)

    The Cognitive Model of Anuvyavasāya.Mainak Pal - 2020 - Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research 37 (1):133-157.
    This paper intends to present a cognitive model of anuvyavasāya through causal and logical analysis of the moment examinations, remaining consistent with the fundamental presuppositions of the Nyāya system. The Naiyāyikas hold that no cognition is self-revealing in nature. A subsequent mental perception, introspection or after-perception reveals the determinate cognition. In anuvyavasāya, along with the cognition and Self, the object of determinate cognition also is known. The vyavasāya itself, working as cognition-induced extraordinary sensory connection, connects its object to the mental (...)

  9. What More Than Structure Do We Know?S. Siddharth - 2020 - Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research 37 (1):115-131.
    Structural realism is the view that scientific theories give us knowledge only of the structure of the unobservable world. The view faces an influential objection that was first posed by Max Newman: if our knowledge of the unobservable world were strictly limited to its structure, our knowledge turns out to be trivial, for it amounts to nothing more than knowledge of the cardinality of the world. In this paper, I shall propose a response to Newman’s objection. It shall be argued (...)

  10. The Notion of Good Life: A Dialogue on the Moral Foundations of Legitimacy.Mayavee Singh - 2020 - Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research 37 (1):83-95.
    Political philosophers often grapple with the issue of the legitimacy of state coercion. Aristotle, a perfectionist, opines that all men hold an objective account of the good life. As regards legitimacy, he entails that state policies are justified only when all its members comprehend the value that has been identified in accordance with the true notion of good. Aristotle argues that the state should facilitate the encouragement of objectively valuable notions of the good. Ronald Dworkin, a neutralist, proposes a specific (...)
