Abstract

My review of Volume 1 of the four-volume Science and Philosophy in the Indian Buddhist Classics appeared in Al-Shajarah, vol. 26, no. 1 (June 2021) issue. In that review, I promised readers that once I get hold of the second volume, I will try to write a review of it. However, by the time I received a copy of the book – as a complimentary copy from a Malaysian disciple of His Holiness the Dalai Lama – it was too late for me to prepare a review of it to be in time for publication in the December 2021 issue of this Journal. Nonetheless, I am glad that my review of the anticipated volume is now before readers in the present issue of this Journal. In welcoming the first volume, I emphasise the significance that it has for cross-civilisational studies of religion and science. I view the second volume as another significant contribution to the growing literature on such studies. It will help meet the growing contemporary world need for a truly inclusive global narrative of the history of ideas to replace the Western-centric global narrative that has for too long reigned the academic and scholarly world.
