History

Dr. T. M. A. Pai, the founder of Manipal University, was a staunch believer in the importance of the humanities. He wrote that “the craze for medical and engineering education must not come at the cost of vital subjects of arts, literature and philosophy.” It was this vision that led to the creation of the Manipal Centre for Philosophy and Humanities (MCPH) in February 2010.
