About Indian Institute of Advanced Study (IIAS):
Because of the common vision of President S. Radhakrishnan the remarkable philosopher-statesman-and Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the Indian Institute of Advanced Study Society was registered on 6 October 1964 under the Registration of Societies Act of 1860. Exactly fifty-four weeks later, the Institute was formally inaugurated by President Radhakrishnan himself.
Under the Memorandum of Association, the primary objective of the Institute was ‘to provide an environment suitable for academic research’ in the humanities, and the social and natural sciences. In his inaugural address, Professor Radhakrishnan emphasized that a crucial question for the Institute to engage with was ‘whether what has come down to us as truth is in fact true or requires some kind of modification’. ‘We should not’, he said, ‘be prisoners of the status quo’.
