Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The West has long romanticized the mysterious East, but it has also judged its traditions as uncivilized. Our notions about Eastern spirituality have been formed by a succession of travelers, scientists, artists, intellectuals, poets, philosophers, and missionaries, as well as by Eastern travelers who have spent time in the West. This book helps us to recognize the influence of Eastern ideas upon modern Western thought by tracing the history of engagements between East and West up until the present day. It concludes with a section that helps us to perceive the timeless value of the many Eastern contributions to the West's current intellectual and spiritual state.
