Mission and Objectives :

The department was once the center of learning in philosophy and scholars used to come to the department for research from the different parts of the country. The department would like to revive its past glory and make it once again a center of excellence. We want to upgrade the department as a center of excellence in terms of offering specializations in all fields of philosophy. We want to revive the publication of the journals such as Review of Darshan, and strengthen the regular publication of Samdarshana.
