About the author

Eberhart (Edward) Julius Dietrich Conze (1904 – September 24, 1979) was an English scholar and translator who was famous for his translations of Buddhist texts, and particularly his 1951 book Buddhism. It is significant that as a scholar of Buddhism he also tried to practice it, especially meditation. He taught at the University of London and the University of Oxford. He lived in Oxford, England until his death in 1979.

A highly original discussion of problems of philosophy of religion from the lndian point of view. The exposition shows that the Christian theologian who will take the trouble to study Indian religion seriously, and not merely “historically,” will find in its teachings abundant extrinsic and probable proofs of the truth of Christian doctrine; and may at the same time realize the essential unity of all religions.

Ananda Kentish Coomaraswamy (22 August 1877, Colombo - 9 September 1947, Needham, Massachusetts) was a Sri Lankan philosopher. He wished to be remembered as primarily a metaphysician, but he also was a pioneering historian and philosopher of Indian art, especially art history and symbolism, and an early interpreter of Indian culture.
