The Mission of Philosophy, first published in 1960, is an anthology of seven insightful essays on Indian philosophy by Prof. M. Hiriyanna. He explains the mission of philosophy, which focuses on getting rid of ignorance and developing a vision of one's true Self. He links philosophy neither to religion nor science, but instead, to common sense. In his view, philosophy visualizes the ideal and then offers the tools to attain it. Prof. Hiriyanna explains how the highest goal is to attain freedom even while being alive, the coveted state of jivanmukti. The strenuous discipline undertaken by the seeker becomes a part of the everyday conduct of the enlightened.
