About this product
- DescriptionJohannes Bronkhorst, professor of Sanskrit and Indian Studies at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, from 1987 to 2011, undoubtedly belongs to the most talented and significant indologists of the last three decades. His abundant work testifies to an unparalleled range of interests from early Buddhism to grammar, mathematics to asceticism, philosophy to archaeology, and is characterized by the determination to challenge preconceived ideas, cliches and traditional (mis)constructs. The present felicitation volume includes thirty-two essays by some of the finest scholars in the field of indology, which reflect Johannes Bronkhorst's main scholarly contributions: Grammar, Philosophy, Vedic Studies, Buddhism and Jainism, Dharmasastra and Arthasastra, Epics and Pura?as.
