Description

This volume contains the Indian portion of the author's Travel Diary - titled Philosophy of Senses: The Journal of a Philosopher.

Count Keyserling (1880-1946) was a German philosopher who focussed most of his thinking and writings on metaphysics. He wrote a number of books on philosophy. Just before explosion of the World War I, he as a meditative philosopher arrived at the conclusion that everything including all aspects of life are being questioned. For him the best way of discovering oneself was to travel around the world.

He left Europe, traveled in the Orient and then in America. The books recording his world travels were titled Philosophy of Sense: The Journal of a Philosopher:. This journal of which this volume records the Indian part of his experiences - is not only masterpiece but also reflects the pinnacle of his thinking.

Poet Tagore has this to say about Keyserling's travel Journal: Through the clouds of incomprehension that separate Europe from the Orient, this travel journal appeared as a ray of sunshine. We Indians have welcomed Keyserling's journal as a great book.
