This chapter critically evaluates the assessment of the state of philosophy in Indian universities by K. Satchidananda Murty. Though Murty’s canvas of philosophy is broad based, he fails to take into consideration the contributions from the sandhi period, that is, the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, in his assessment of the state of philosophy in India. This shows how Murty is largely preoccupied with ancestors and outsiders, grossly neglecting the immediate predecessors. These predecessors, consisting of Vivekananda, Aurobindo, Gandhi, and others, seriously negotiated, with varying success, both the ancestors and outsiders. This attempt has to be seriously incorporated while undertaking similar exercises.

Keywords:   philosophy in Indian universities, Satchidananda Murty, sandhi period, ancestors, outsiders, predecessors
