“Dr Syed Zafarul Hasan”Remarks by Dr Zia-uddin (Vice Chancellor, Aligarh Muslim Univ., Aligarh, India):
His Education in Philosophy is about the highest any one had in India. He was the only Mussalman Philosopher invited to contribute to “Contemporary Philosophy – Indian Section” edited by Prof. Muirhead. At that time, he was the only living Eastern Philosopher whose philosophical position was made the subject of a Doctor’s Dissertation in Bonn University, bringing a first class degree to the candidate. His German book on Spinoza brought him the distinction of Fellowship to the International Academy of Philosophy, Erlangen, and was immediately taken up as part of “Series of Great Philosophers” by Rossl Verlag Munich at the instance of Prof. Goesta Ecke. His English book on Realism was published by Cambridge University Press at the instance of the renowned Professo G. E. Moore, and valued by a Professor of Philosophy as the “Bible of Realism”. —— The well-known Oxford philosopher H. W. B. Joseph wrote: ” I should be proud to see a book of mine reviewed so favorably.” —– Prof. Ernst Hoffmann of Heidelberg, praising the originality of its position undertook to make translations from it for the great German Philosophical Journal “Logos”. It was studied by the students of the subject all over the world. His name and the sketch of his life was inserted in more than one “Who is who in Philosophy”, and also in “Who is Important in Education”; and his books mentioned in standard treatises like Metz’s “Hundred Years of British Philosophy”, etc., and discussions held on them in Journals of Philosophy like “Monist.”
Dr. Syed SYED ZAFAR-UL-HASAN (Feb. 14, 1885 – June 19, 1949), son of K. S. (Khan Sahib) Syed Diwan Mohammad, was a prominent Pre-partition Muslim Indian Philosopher of this era. He was educated at Allahabad (M.A., LL. B.), the Erlangen University Germany and Oxford University, England (He got a Doctorate from both universities). His Doctoral thesis Realism: An Attempt to Trace Its Origin and Development in Its Chief Representatives is a classic on the subject.
