Brief History

 

  • The Department of Philosophy, Netaji Mahavidyalaya , took its start since the very beginning of the college , i.e. in the year 1948.
  • In the beginning, it was an intermediate-college under the University of Calcutta. At that time the department taught the students of intermediate classes the subjects known as Logic and Philosophy. Subsequently, it was upgraded to a degree college, and the subject of Philosophy was taught to the students as a general course.
  • In the year 1960, at that time of the very inception of the University of Burdwan, the college came under it. In the year 1973, the University of Burdwan upgraded the Philosophy department of the College and offered Honours status to it. Since that time the department has been teaching Honours as well as General course in Philosophy to the students.
  • At the very beginning of the Department, Prof. Sitansu. Kr. Dutta was appointed a lecturer in Logic and Philosophy and acted as the Head of the Department. After wards, Anindita Choudhury was appointed a Lecturer in the second-post . As the Department was upgraded to Honours teaching as per the norms of the
  • Govt. of West Bengal and the status of the university of Burdwan, four posts were sanctioned for the Department. Consequently, Dr. (Mrs.) Rita Dube, and Prof. Asim Kumar Pathak were appointed in the third and fourth posts respectively. Later on Asim Kumar Pathak resigned the post. The fourth post was lying vacant naturally. Dr. Bimalendu Samanta filled up the post and continued and acted as the Head of the Department.
  • The other there teachers were retained in due course after the completion of their scornful traces the vacant post of Prof Sitansu Kumar Dutta was replaced by Dr. Narendra Kumar Singh. The vacant post of Prof Aniindita Choudhury was replaced by Sudhansu Mondal. The vacant post of Dr Rita Dube was replaced by Prof Shiuli Kower.
  • The vacant post of Dr. Bimolendu Samanta is supplemented by three different Govt. approved part time teachers. They are Mrs. Kaskoli Sain, Mrs. Rumana Afrose, Apurbo Mondal. There is also one Guest faculty in our Department named Manasaram Ghosh
  • In spite of all these, it is to be noted that the department possesses the full competency of the faculty. All the teachers are really competent in teaching Honours and General course of studies. The results of the department are thus dressed-up with a transparent history of its own.
