A Catholic born in Mangalore, India, he was raised and Jesuit-educated in Kolkata, before doing graduate work in philosophy at Cambridge and Boston University. He taught for thirty years at California State University, Los Angeles, and was a fellow or visiting scholar at many leading universities as well as President of the Society for Asian and Comparative Philosophy. Joseph was the author or editor of many important works, including books on Raimon Panikkar and Gandhi. His commitment to the interfaith movement was deep and enduring and we honor his memory with gratitude.
The Parliament extends our deepest condolences to Dr. Prabhu’s family, loved ones, interfaith colleagues, and his global community.
