About this author

Narendra Nath Sen Gupta was born on 23 December 1889 in Faridpur, India. He was a Harvard-educated Indian psychologist, philosopher, and professor, who is generally recognized as the founder of modern psychology in India along with Indian Scientist Gunamudian David Boaz.

He attended Bengal National College, an educational institution that was founded as a means of challenging British hegemony in India by putting education exclusively under national control.

He attended Harvard College from 1910 to 1913, during which he received his atrium Baccalaureus (i.e., bachelor of arts degree). Sen Gupta returned to India in August 1915 and was appointed lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Calcutta in January 1916.

In 1929, Sen Gupta and Radhakamal Mukerjee published Introduction to Social Psychology, one of the first texts covering the topic of social psychology published in India.

Sen Gupta drew from original literature from religious texts of ancient India and the classics of Christian mysticism to writing his “magnum opus,” which he planned to publish under the title ‘Mechanisms of Ecstasy’. The manuscript was lost in confusion following Sen Gupta’s death in June 1944 due to a stroke.
