This volume is a collection of critical studies of Professor J. N. Mohanty's work on phenomenology and Indian philosophy. The essays were written especially for this collection by philosophers from India, Europe, the United States, and Australia. The concluding chapter of this volume contains his assessment of his own philosophical position and his response to his critics. The diversity of the topics on which Mohanty has written attests to the multidimensional character and fecundity of his work. The writings in this new collection make the multifaceted character of Mohanty's writings obvious and facilitate the sort of 'comparative philosophy' which Mohanty himself has pursued so vigorously.
