A highly original discussion of problems of philosophy of religion from the Indian point of view. The whole 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, if he will abandon his "proselytising fury," 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 also he was a pioneering historian and philosopher of Indian art, especially art history and symbolism, and an early interpreter of Indian culture to the West.
