Homage to Bimal Krishna Matilal
Mihir K. Chakraborti, Benedikt Loewe, Madhabendra Nath Mitra and Sundar Sarukkai, eds.
Born in Calcutta in 1935, Bimal Krishna Matilal is regarded as one
among the world's leading scholars of Indian Philosophy. His work can be
considered as one of the most important bridges between Indian and Western
logic. His untimely death in 1991 deprived the world of an outstanding
thinker and philosopher.
In January 2007, a conference was held in Matilal's home city Calcutta
in his memory, bringing together logicians working on both Indian and
Western logic. This thoroughly peer-reviewed volume contains a selection
of the best papers; some represent Indian logic, others Western logic, and
some continue Matilal's work of building bridges. The spirit of the 2007
Calcutta conference continues in the conference series ICLA, now run by
the Association for Logic in India (ALI).
