Tattva-viveka was written in 1893. In this unique book,Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura takes a look at innumerable philosophies, bothEastern and Western, and points out their mistakes. In the course of this shortwork, the author describes the Greek philosophers Leucippus, Democritus, Platoand Aristotle, Diderot and Lamettrie of France, Lucretius of Italy Von Holbachof Germany: Yangchoo of Carvaka of India: and Englishmen Mill, Lewis Paine,Carlyle, Bentham, and Combe. The aim of philosophy is certainly to ascertain the truthregarding ourselves, this world, and our purpose in life. Here it is pointedout that throughout history there have been innumerable attempts to answerthese questions and each is somewhat different because each philosopher has adifferent nature acquired by material conditioning. Thus, although the truth isone, we are presented with innumerable philosophies and thus may becomeconfused. Only a pure devotee of the Lord coming in disciplesuccession, such as Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, could survey the entire history of philosophy insuch less number of pages and made such clear and convincing conclusions. For thisreason, this is a unique and remarkable work in the vast library of Vaisnavaliterature. It?ll be a pure pleasure to go through the wonderful translation byKusakratha Prabhu and We?re confident thatevery reader of this book will garner a great deal of insight into the subjectsof philosophy and religion.
