About the Author:

Wilhelm Halbfass (1940–2000) was Professor of Indian Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. He is the author of India and Europe: An Essay in Understanding; Tradition and Reflection: Explorations in Indian Thought; and On Being and What There Is: Classical Vaisesika and the History of Indian Ontology; all published by SUNY Press.

Review:

“This collection of Paul Hacker’s essays contains all those which I personally consider to be his most brilliant and fascinating ones. They have been translated here from German for the first time and will thus receive, at last, the attention they highly deserve, now that they will be accessible to a larger public.” ― L. Schmithausen, University of Hamburg

“A very useful collection of the writings of one of the most important twentieth-century Indologists. The editor’s Introduction is especially helpful, placing as it does Paul Hacker’s work in the context of cross-cultural studies in general.” ― Eliot Deutsch, University of Hawaii, Honolulu

“The book makes available to the English reader for the first time major works of one of the most important modern scholars of Indian philosophy.” ― Patrick Olivelle, University of Texas, Austin

"Hacker's work is indispensable for anyone who would understand Vedanta and related strands of Indian intellectual traditions both ancient and modern. The content of his essays is important, many of the articles are ground breaking, and Hacker's style of scholarship is paradigmatic: philologically expert, historically and critically attuned, capable of handling the philosophical issues raised by the texts, sensitive to broader and deeper religious and theological issues." -- Francis X. Clooney, S.J., Boston College
