Indian Thought and Its Development
by Albert Schweitzer

This book brings out the similarities among the Eastern religions and explains their essential tenets. It is brilliantly written and illuminates the deepest thoughts. His analysis of the development of Indian mysticism centers on the theme of world and life negation versus world and life affirmation. He believes in the latter, but thinks the mysticism of Eastern thought needs to be appreciated. I don't understand why.

Year Read: 1984
