About the Author:


S. Radhakrishnan (1888-1975) was a distinguished scholar, statesman, and author. He taught for many years at Oxford University before becoming the President of India in 1962. He was awarded Bharat Ratna in 1954.

Review:


"This work gives a clear and rational account of the highest conceptions of Hinduism. The happy blend of Eastern conceptions with Western terminology makes the book intelligible even to the inexpert and it need hardly be added, instructive. Professor Radhakrishnan has shown that in their perception of the goal, in the acuteness of their reasoning, and in the boldness of their conceptions, the Indian thinkers are second to none."--Times Literary Supplement


"Comprehensive and authoritative. No such adequate account of Hindu thought has appeared in English. The spirit, motive, and method of this great book are admirable." --Church Times
