A landmark comparative study, this volume analyzes the characteristic thought patterns of four Asian peoples--the Indians, the Chinese, the Japanese, and the Tibetans--as these are revealed in their language, their logic, and their cultural products. Hajime Nakamura focuses particularly on the impact of Buddhism, seeking to clarify the ways in which Buddhism and Indian logic were introduced from India into China, Japan, and Tibet, and how this universal religion and logic has become modifed according to the native characteristics of each people.
