About the Book :

This book is a compilation of articles related to three broad spheres. We may consider "Philosophy, Human Life and Society" as a triangle. Perceptible thing is that different concepts and issues related to these three involve value perspectives.
The constitution of human nature and his mental faculties (thinking, feeling and willing) make him competent to choose how best he can live. The reflective capacity he is endowed with enables him to distinguish the right from the wrong. But, his freedom and creativity get ample manifestation within society only. At the same time, his crowning intelligence and imagination will flourish if it is guided by a healthy philosophical outlook.
