This essay argues that the philosophical quest of J. N. Mohanty creates possibility of an exchange between the ‘alien’ and the ‘familiar’ and addresses the problem of the ‘other’. Mohanty’s life-long pursuit brings together, at the level of religion, culture and politics to dialogue (a) Sri Aurobindo and Gandhi, at the level of phenomenological concepts (b) fact and value (c) theory and practice, and at the level of modes of thinking (d) East and West.
