"This book analyzes the modes of thought or 'ways of thinking' of four Asian peoples, in order to arrive at a new level of mutual understanding between cultures once outmoded concepts of 'East' and 'West' are left behind."--BOOK JACKET. "Embracing four civilizations, four literary traditions and two and a half millenia of history, it examines a whole range of social-historical, cultural, psychological and linguistic phenomena into which it offers a wealth of insight."--BOOK JACKET. "Each of the four sections is developed on a common plan, beginning with a discussion of language and logic and of the characteristic ways in which each of these Asian peoples habitually made certain types of judgements. The author then moves on to study manifestations of these cultural patterns in formal philosophical writing, in literature and in individual and group behaviour, with Buddhism used as a linking element."--BOOK JACKET. "This unique comparative study is essential reading for all those seeking a profound understanding of human thought across cultures and across time."--BOOK JACKET

From the Introduction: Gottfried Wilhelm Freiherr von Leibniz (1646-1716) belonged not only to that century but exemplified also the Renaissance ideal of the universal man in his many-sided activities, and ushered in The Age of the Enlightment as well. He was a lawyer, scientist, inventor, diplomat, poet, philologist, logician, moralist, theologian, historian, and a philosopher who religiously defended the cultivation of reason as the radiant hope of human progress. Leibniz's writings are both the delight and despair of students of his many-sided thought. They are a delight to a wide variety of scholars because they contain brilliant apercus suggestive of many new ideas in the development of modern scientific and philosophic thought
