  • Prof. Syed Ali Abbas Jalalpuri was a professor of philosophy in Government College Lahore. He is regarded by the intellectuals of Pakistan as the Will Durant of Pakistan. He had Master's degrees in Philosophy, Persian and Urdu. He wrote more than fourteen books on Philosophy, History, and Religion in Urdu language. He was known as a first-rate scholar, and his books seemed to herald an age of reason in Pakistan. His opinions on the subjects of history, civilization, religion, philosophy, metaphysics, folklore are held in great esteem. In his greatest work, Riwayat-e-Falsafa, he tried to educate a common Urdu reader on the subject of Philosophy. This book served its purpose in popularizing the subject it discussed like Will Durant's The Story of Philosophy. Like The Dictionnaire Historique et Critique of Pierre Bayle and The Philosophical Dictionary of Voltaire, he wrote a philosophical dictionary, 'Khird Nama Jalalpuri' to explain subject's terminologies in Urdu. He also wrote “Jinsiyati Mutaley”, which presented a great research work on the subject in Urdu language.
