Professor M (Mysooru) Hiriyanna (7th May, 1871- 1950) was one of the greatest Samskrit thinkers and Vedantic scholars of the 19th-20th centuries. An authority on Indian Philosophy (Bhaarateeya Darshanaaha), he was well versed in both the Sanskrit classics and English literature. His distinctive perception and insight into the philosophical spirit, and his concepts and doctrines of Indian Philosophy are recognized the world over.A contemporary of Dr S RaadhaKrishnan, Prof Hiriyanna was known for his precision, scrupulousness and economy of expression. He was the pioneering philosopher who established the relationship between Philosophy and Aesthetics, at a time when the world believed that ” though a nation of Philosophers, the idea of the beautiful in nature did not exist in the Hindu mind!”(The philosophy of the beautiful, by William Knight).
