The project of digitization of 31 back volumes of Indian
Philosophical Quarterly was undertaken during the first phase of
University of Potential Excellence (UPE) Scheme of the University Grants
Commission under the auspices of Centre for Social Sciences and
Humanities of University of Pune. It is hoped that internet availability
of a total 1035 articles and a sizable number of reviews and
discussions will serve better the interests of specialists and the
general public alike.
Indian Philosophical Quarterly (IPQ) was launched by the
late Professor S. S. Barlingay in October 1973 with a view to provide a
forum for expressing philosophical views of diverse orientations and
interdisciplinary concerns in Indian and Western philosophical
Traditions. In order to highlight some of the most fundamental issues in
Indian reception of the West, IPQ has published a special number on K.
C. Bhattacharyya’s seminal discourse on Svaraj in Ideas
(Vol. 11 No 4, 1984). Similarly, in remembrance of the All Time Great
Philosophers, IPQ has published Special Numbers on Rene Descartes
(Vol. 23 Nos. 1-2, 1996) and Immanuel Kant (Vol. 31 Nos.
1-4, 2004). IPQ is listed in International Documentation Services such
as Philosophers Index, U.S.A. and Repertoire
Bibliographique de Philosophie Belgium.
The digitized contents of IPQ Volume Nos.1-31 are protected under copy
right conventions and are not allowed to use for commercial purposes.
