Fr Thathireddy Vijaya Bhaskar - Vice Provincial of Hyderabad successfully defends doctoral thesis in UPS, Rome

By Bellamkonda Sudhakar
Hyderabad, Dec. 13. Fr. Thathireddy Vijaya Bhaskar Reddy, Vice Provincial of the Salesian Province of Hyderabad, successfully defended his doctoral thesis: ''A PHILOSOPHY OF COMMUNICATION IN THE THOUGHT OF LUDWIG WITTGENSTEIN,'' at Universit� Pontificia Salesiana (UPS) on December 13, 2011. He has analysed two principal works: Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus and Philosophical Investigations to derive a philosophy of communication.
There were more than 50 participants including Rev. Fr. Maria Arockiam Kanaga, the Regional Councilor for South Asia, Fr. Joquim D'souza, Superior of the UPS Vice Province, and Fr. Eusebio Munoz SDB, the Rector of Don Bosco Community, UPS. The Panel headed by Fr. Carlo Nanni, the Rector of the University, included Fr. Jaroslaw Rochowiak, the General Secretary, Fr. Scaria Thuruthiyil, the guide, Fr. Tadeusz Lewicki and Mrs. Cristiana Freni, the readers.

Fr. Thathireddy tried to elicit a philosophy of communication in the thought of Wittgenstein, through his analysis of the pragmatic elements of language contained in his later thought. In constructing a philosophy of communication, he has enumerated the dynamism that is present in language and meanings which are derived from various contexts of the use of words. One of the derivations of the research is that communication is meant for creating communion between people. The uniqueness of the thesis is that the researcher tried to present Wittgenstein from the perspective of communications.

It is to be noted that Fr. Thathireddy had several interruptions in his doctoral research, due to a fatal accident of his father, and being appointed as vice provincial of the province. In spite of such experiences and responsibility, he has successfully completed his research and is conferred with the title: 'Doctor in Philosophical studies.' In his concluding words, he expressed his gratitude to all those who accompanied him during his journey of the doctoral research. He specially thanked the province of Hyderabad, Fr. Noel Maddhichetty (former provincial) and Fr. Raminedi Balaraju, the present provincial for the opportunity and their support.
Congratulation Fr Thathi on achieving this milestone...
