This classic comparative study of the world's three great philosophies-Western (including Jewish), Indian, and Chinese-surveys the three philosophical traditions from their beginnings to the present time. However, in examining the traditions, Professor Raju has been less occupied with separate doctrines and individual thinkers than with essential characteristics and general trends. He has analyzed and compared these features within the traditions and explored the parallels and divergencies among them. For the general interested reader, the interchange among the philosophies will be especially valuable. For the students of religion and of philosophy, the work is a standard guide and reference work.
P.T. Raju has invested his life in giving us this comparative study of Western, Chinese and Indian philosophies. The book is very interesting because all the philosophies lead to the same goal: self realization. J.S. Bright, The "Spokesman" Weekly 19th Ap
