"M.N. Roy's New Humanism and Materialism provides a succinct and clear exposition of Roy's thought and a brief but fascinating sketch of his life...Dr. Ramendra places Roy's ideas in the context of the history of materialist philosophy, including a tantalizingly brief mention of Lokayat or Charvaka, an ancient Indian school of materialist thought." -- Phil Ebersole in 'The Bertrand Russell Society Quarterly'. In addition to being an authoritative exposition of M. N. Roy's new humanism and materialism, Dr. Ramendra's scholarly book is an authentic source of information on traditional materialism as well as on Marxian materialism. 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. Apart from 'The Bertrand Russell Society Quarterly' the book has also been reviewed by the 'Rationalist Voice' and 'The Radical Humanist' among others. The book finds a mention in 'Philosopedia' as well. The author, Dr. Ramendra has contributed an article on "M. N. Roy" to 'The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy'.show more
