The Legacy of Asia and Western Man




The Legacy of Asia and Western Man: A Study of the Middle Way

“As this book is rather a propos of than about the philosophy and religion of the East, I would especially direct the reader’s attention to the Bibliography and Glossary at the end. The former is a comprehensive selection of the innumerable works on Vedanta, Bud-dhism, Taoism and Yoga published in English, French and German. This book is less a description of the information contained in these works than a guide to it, an account of certain principles which will make it more understandable to the Western mind. It might therefore be called a preface to books on the wisdom of Asia…”
