M. N. Roy's New Humanism and Materialism

Dr. Ramendra, 2001, pp. 144, Price Rs. 100 (US $8)

This scholarly book by Dr. Ramendra focuses on Roy’s materialism and its differences from traditional and Marxian materialism. Besides, the author has also discussed the appropriateness of the term “materialism” for describing M. N. Roy’s philosophy. According to Dr. Ramendra, it is better to use “physical realism” for describing M. N. Roy’s theory of reality, a term preferred by Roy himself. In addition to being an authoritative exposition of M. N. Roy’s new humanism and materialism, Dr. Ramendra’s book is an authentic source of information on traditional materialism as well as on Marxian materialism.
