Title Review

Lokayata is a scholarly and a very closely argued work, which attempts a Marxist interpretation of Indian philosophy and culture -- authored by Late Prof. Debiprasad Chattopadhyay, a renowned scholar of yester year. The present volume is a critical evaluation of Lokayata, through a close study of the whole gamut of Indian Philosophy from Rg Veda to upanishads, Samkhya, non-vedic materialism and the basic tenets of Tantra. Also examined are the methods and theories used in Lokayata, by Debiprasad, ie Marx''s dialectical materialism, social anthropology and evolution. The author arguesthat Marxist interpretation of history is not an ideal frame-work for the history of Indian Philosophy, while showing its drawbacks and effects. The volume incorporates chapterwise detailednotes, bibliography and index.

The author, Dr. Joshi, teaches at the Dept. of Philosophy, University of Bombay, Bombay, India.
