Philosophical Discourse in Modern Marathi

While there is the classical tradition in Sanskrit and Pali which is fairly well recognised, the world of Indian philosophy is not and cannot be restricted to the Sanskrit and Prakrit traditions. This essay is an attempt to underline a few concerns - not necessarily central from everybody's perspective - which have dominated Marathi thought for well over a century.

The presence of a lively and versatile philosophical tradition in a culture is part of its liberal character. An understanding of the human condition that every philosophical tradition searches for, needs a critical engagement with other dominant systems of knowledge. At the same time, a philosophical tradition to be significantly critical must develop tools and discourses to critically examine its own edifice of knowledge. This paper examines the character of philosophic practice in the academic institutions of India.
