"വിഷയങ്ങള്‍ തോറും വിദ്വന്മാരേറെയുള്ള നാടാണ് കേരളം. പക്ഷെ തത്വശാസ്ത്രകാരന്മാർ അപൂർവം . തിരിച്ചറിയലിനെ തിരിച്ചറിഞ്ഞും സിദ്ധാന്തീകരണത്തെ സിദ്ധാന്തീകരിച്ചും എഴുതുന്നതിലേറെ പറഞ്ഞും പറയുന്നതിലേറെ ചിന്തിച്ചും ഒതുങ്ങിവാങ്ങി നില്‍ക്കുന്ന ഒരു തത്വാന്വേഷിയുടെ അപൂർവ രചനയാണിത്. ഒരേസമയത്തു ജ്ഞാനവും ജ്ഞാനാവിഷ്കാരപ്രകാരവും പ്രകാരവിമര്‍ശവും പകരുന്ന രചന. ചിന്തയുടെയും ചിന്താരീതിയുടെയും ഭാവാനുസങ്കീര്‍ത്തനം. "

"This brilliant, brief book is a rare instance when thought succeeds in freeing itself from well-worn idioms of scholarship to experiment and create something radically new.Guruchintana's aim is not to explicate Sree Narayanan as a historical figure, nor to establish accurate, final interpretations for his works. Philology and exegesis appear merely as the means for an unorthodox, original project: to trace the contours of a thought-event. A rigorous work of ‘unweaving’ marks this monograph's intense intimacy with texts and concepts. And at its core is the idea of Nirbadhyata, a state of non-indebtedness: an apt description of the subject’s signature in Sree Narayanan’s gestures and actions, and the air of freedom enjoyed by thought in the pages of this book."

Udaya Kumar


"In spare, thoughtful prose, this philosophical reflection seeks to reclaim one of Kerala’s most iconic spiritual figures from the restrictive lens of ideologues and activists, metaphysicians and pundits. We are invited to view Sri Narayana Guru not as iconoclast or philosopher or social reformer. Instead, the author explores him as a man who cut through jaded polemic, vaulted effortlessly over either/or divides, harmonized and synthesized the doctrinaire positions of sectarian schools and philosophical factions with the poetic genius of a true mystic. This book reminds us of an extraordinary legacy that is far from narrowly regional, and deserves wider attention for its inspired redefinitions of ‘faith, belonging, action and mutuality’. Sri Narayana Guru is more relevant than ever to our times."
