Debiprasad Chattopadhyaya

About this author

Debiprasad Chattopadhyaya was born on 19 November 1918 in Calcutta. He was an Indian Marxist philosopher. His father was a supporter of India’s freedom struggle. It was probably his influence that initiated Debiprasad to two major passions in his life – Indian philosophy and politics; he quickly progressed towards radical streams in both fields, developing a lifelong commitment to Marxism and the communist movement.

He made contributions to the exploration of the materialist current in ancient Indian philosophy. He is known for Lokayata: A Study in Ancient Indian Materialism, which is his exposition of the philosophy of Lokayata. He is also known for his work on the history of science and scientific method in ancient India, especially his 1977 book Science and Society in Ancient India on the ancient physicians Charaka and Sushruta. He was awarded the Padma Bhushan, India’s third highest civilian honor, posthumously, in 1998.
