The writings of Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan philosopher and former President of India, constitute one of the best possible introductions to Indian thought and culture. They are the most important body of work in the development of recent Indian and Western studies in comparative philosophy. This volume contains a representative selection of Radhakrishnan's most significant writings in these area. It explains the aims, key concepts and major predispositions of Radhakrishnan's thoughts and deals with his interpretation of Indian philosophy, his systematic version of Vedanta, his reinterpretation of Hindu dharma and Yoga and his consistent plea for the universal synthesis 'on the plane of spirit'.
