A renaissance figure and marvel that Rabindranath Tagore has been, an analytical predilection of philosophy is hardly enough for comprehending his phenomenal creativity and expression of the highest values of will and feeling. Often the question whether Tagore is a philosopher is quite idle, as idle as whether Nietzsche is a philosopher, or the author of Philosophical Investigations is a philosopher. It is easier to deride the high and naked peaks of synoptic insight and opt for the worship of little gods. If one cares for unfreezing habits of thinking and it ready to see things from a new angle of vision and open windows into the not-yet-seen, then one will have to agree that Tagore is a significant philosophizer and that he compels assent.
