Dr. Arati Barua invited to the International Congress on Schopenhauer, Germany

On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the great Philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer's death the international Schopenhauer Gesellschaft and the Schopenhauer Research Center at the University of Mainz in co-operation with the University Library of the University of Frankfurt organized an international congress “Schopenhauer - What is Moving the World” on September 22-24. The event took place in Frankfurt, Germany, at the prestigious Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University. Dr Barua was invited as Indian expertise in this field to deliver a talk on “Schopenhauer in the light of Indian Philosophy” under the Asiatic section / Indian division of the congress.


It is a matter of great pride that Dr Barua founded the Indian division with her efforts in 2002 at Gauhati University which later got recognition from the main International Schopenhauer society of Germany. Since then she has been working for the development of Schopenhauer studies in India. He was the first Western philosopher who paid great homage to Upanishads and introduced it to the Western world. Now the research scientists on Schopenhauer all over the world are working to find out the extent to which he was influenced by the Indian Philosophy and culture.


Recently Dr Barua organized a two day International conference at Delhi as the beginning of the 150th years of the death anniversary celebration of Schopenhauer where many German scholars came to take part in it, apart from other scholars from other countries. Dr. Barua brought out a book - the first of its kind (Edited by her) “Schopenhauer and Indian Philosophy: A Dialogue between India and Germany” which strengthens the link of Indo-German scholars connection in this regard.
