The writings of Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, philosopher and former President of India, constitute one of the best possible introductions of Indian thought and culture. His work has been the most important single factor in the genesis and development of Indian and Western comparative studies.
Radhakrishnan worked creatively for a greater synthesis of Indian and Western values, and in so doing he helped establish the data, problems, and method for the comparative study of Indian and Western philosophical, religious, and cultural ideas.
This volume presents, for the first time in paperback, the best of Radhakrishnan's writings.
