'One of the profoundly moving religious books of our time.' --The Guardian --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Professor S. Radhakrishnan (1888-1975) was a prominent philosopher, author and educationalist. He was equally at home in the European and Asiatic traditions of thought, and devoted an immense amount of energy to interpreting Indian religion, culture and philosophy for the rest of the world. He was a visiting professor at many foreign universities, and served as India's Ambassador Extraordinary to the USSR from 1949 to 1952. He was elected to the office of vice-president of India in 1957. He became the President of India in 1962 and held this rank until 1967, when he retired from public life. He wrote a number of books for readers the world over. Some of his outstanding works are The Hindu View of Life, An Idealist View of Life and Indian Philosophy, Vols I and II. He dedicated this translation to Mahatma Gandhi.

I got this edition but pages from 13 to 30 unfortunately are not included. As you see this edition has 336 pages but original has more than 350. Anyway, Radhakrishnan is great author and i had very good refund experience with Amazon also. Try to buy some other edition.

Sincerely, Mathi
