Overview of Study of Hinduism

In The Study of Hinduism, leading scholars from around the world take stock of two centuries of international intellectual investment of Hinduism. Since the early nineteenth century, when the scholarly investigation of Hinduism began to take shape as a modern academic discipline, Hindu studies has evolved from its concentration on description and analysis to an emphasis on understanding Hindu traditions in the context of the religion's own values, concepts, and history. Offering a needed assessment of the current state of Hindu studies, the contributors to this volume identify past achievements and chart the course for what remains to be accomplished in the field.

Synopsis of Study of Hinduism

The southern Asian religion itself is not central here to the contributing scholars of religion, history, and Asia. Rather, they are concerned with the various views of it in the west, largely since the British colonization of India. In addition to looking at what has been done in the past, they suggest new ways of exploring the tradition. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
