ABSTRACT :M. N. Roy was one of the most fascinating, though highly controversial modern Indian thinkers on politics and philosophy. In the evolution of his ideas, he shifted his position from a nationalist revolutionary to an ardent Marxist and from a Marxist to a radical humanist. Roy attempted to give a scientific exposition of philosophy and distinguished it from religion. He said that no philosophical advancement is possible in the presence of religious beliefs and theological dogmas. He felt the need of a new and truly revolutionary social and political philosophy, which would infuse a fresh and re-invigorating ethical outlook, and realized the real nature of man. The philosophy of Radical Humanism, which Roy developed, was an effort in this direction. The present article analyzes his philosophy of Radical Humanism and its relevance in the present day.
