From the Jacket:

Professor J.N. Chubb was a distinguished philosopher and a mystic. His long career as professor of Philosophy at the Elphinstone College, Bombay, coincided with an intense churning in Indian philosophical thinking as a result of the debate in West between idealist philosophy and logical positivism. This was also the time when spiritual philosophies of India began to assimilate critically the trends of logical analysis, phenomenology, existentialism, pragmatism and other philosophies of will and of evolution. Professor Chubb's papers which are collected here by professor H.M. Joshi in this book reflect this process of churning and assimilation.

Professor Chubb passed away on 21st May 2001 after a long and dedicated career during which he inspired and guided hundreds of students, and influenced a number of philosophers in India and elsewhere. In his writings, one finds not only originally and self-conscious criticism of a high order, but also indications on future lines on which philosophy and empiricism meet in his philosophical thought, and East and West, too, greet each other in a sweep towards a possible synthesis.

In the series of books on contemporary Indian philosophers which are being brought out by the ICPR, this book will introduce to the readers a distinguished philosopher whose contributions have been extremely valuable and will continue to stimulate fresh lines of philosophical thought.

About the Author:

He was for many years Professor and Head, Philosophy Department in M.S. University, Baroda. He was UGC Research Fellow in S.P. University, Rajkot, from 1996 to 1999. He authored several books including Nature of Mind, Knowledge, Value and other Essays, Contemporary and Traditional Ethics, Bradley and Sri Aurobindo, etc. He also wrote some philosophical books in Gujarati and some of them are prescribed as text books in several Universities.
