The present work deals with the evaluation of the creative and constructive human value, present in Indian tradition and culture in the context of Tagore's intercultural exploration of Indian thought.

The volume examines religion, philosophy and culture as developed in modern contemporary Indian thinker like Rabindranath Tagore in his novel scheme of The Religion of Man as the creative essence of human being with the natural expression of potent Universality in man through his material, mental, social and spiritual states of existence.

In the background of this analysis of human nature and existence, Tagore's model of The Religion of Man as the natural manifestation of universality in his life and existence, examined in the context of critical and comparative study of both Indian and Western Philosophy and Culture. This comprehensive approach expounds the potential universality in human beings in all times and all societies which may be accepted as the evolution of creative humanistic values, in expanding the philosophy of Universal Man as the socio-cultural form of Universal Humanism as a Theory of Creative Man which is to be regarded as the philosophical model of peace in strife – torn world..
