The question, according to George P. Conger, noted authority on Indian philosophy, is not so much whether India can contribute as whether the west is ready to receive.

Here, in selected essays from the proceedings of the east-west philosophers' conferences, is an examination by world authorities of one of the oldest, richest, most complicated, and most profound philosophical traditions of all time.

The intimate relationship in Indian perspective between philosophy and life is revealed. Common misunderstandings concerning Indian philosophy are exposed, and the marked kinship between India and the west is emphasized.
