About the Book.
Unlike linguistic and analytic philosophies the book is a philosophy of language. Unlike meaning-centric philosophies popular in East and West the language-centric approach of the book is based on expressive nature of language. The discussion and argumentation through out the chapters of the book are appropriately natural in understanding that the analysis, translation and interpretation of the language being awareness by nature is non-different from that of the meaning. Cognition is infused by language; being determinate, discriminate and disinterested it serves the cause- proper of incentive to our conduct in day to day practices.
Discussion of the philosophical problems in the book is free from intermingling any metaphysical, ontological and other perceptions about the objects which for us are intelligible –beings. Philosophy in the book is not only based on but also is confined to intelligible- beings the language expresses. Almost the courses on Indian philosophy of language prescribed in Universities are well presented in comparison and contrast to counter theories of the East and the West. The book is useful for scholars and students and substantial for those who want a fresh perception to meet out the new challenges in philosophy.
