We are inviting you for your contribution in the form of your research paper.

Objective of the Session:

Indian philosophy is the name given to different philosophical thoughts that grew and developed on Indian soil. Philosophy in India has a very ancient origin. In fact, philosophical speculation started in India in the vedic age itself. Freethinking sages of ancient India speculated independently about various fundamental questions relating to human life and its destiny. It also includes philosophical speculations of all thinkers of India, whether ancient or modern. In this session our intention is to see the development of philosophy in India, all periods in general and 21st Century in particular. It may include the development of all schools of Indian philosophy as well as recent trends.
