The Indian Council of Philosophy Research (ICPR),Lucknow is an integral part of the ICPR council and acts as the academic center fostering research studies in the field of philosophy. Since ages, India has been one of the most prolific beds for various schools of philosophy. History has witnessed the advent of many great men all of whom inculcated different philosophical beliefs which included religious philosophy, metaphysics and even the modern day political philosophy of Marxism, communism and existentialism which were mainly western in their origin.

However, there has been little or no effort to foster the studies of philosophy in a much more professional way in India barring a few individuals like Dr.Radhakrishnan.It was only in the year 1977, that under the initiative of Government of India, ICPR was formed under the Societies Act 1860.
