Editorial Reviews


"Radhakrishnan's masterly presentation of Hinduism and Western intellectual thought should be the book of choice for classes on Indian thought."--Mehdi Aminrazavi, Mary Washington College

"This book may well mark the turning point in Western civilization. It certainly should."--Times Literary Supplement

"An important and beautiful book written with earnest conviction and conspicuous ability....The author makes his main point that we...have much to learn, and more to unlearn from India. We have neglected our opportunities during our long association with a civilization much older and more mature than our own. It is not too late to remedy our fault." --Philosophy

9 of 14 people found the following review helpful By The Emperor of Antarctica on June 20, 2007
Format: Paperback
Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was a unique person.
He was a respected philosopher and statesman.
He wrote several excellent works concerning Eastern and Western Philosophy and Religion.
He served as President of India.
He was a deeply spiritual man who tried to bridge Eastern and Western thought and cultures.
Can you imagine such a deep spiritual thinker as this in our own White House? Wouldn't that bring a golden age of peace and enlightenment?
Oh well. It won't happen here in the land of violence and materialism.
Anyway, this book is outstanding. Radhakrishnan was an excellent scholar and had deep spiritual insights. He reminds me, in some ways, of Alan Watts who was a sound scholar as well as a mystic. If you want an excellent discussion of Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and Judaism and their interrelationships, read this book.
