The groundbreaking studies contained in this volume present a history of Sanskrit philology and comparative-historical linguistics that is fully integrated with German political and intellectual history ranging from the Enlightenment to Cold War eras. The authors engage and extend the intercultural `dialogue` that Wilhelm Halbfass powerfully initiated in India and Europe: An Essay in Understanding (1988). This volume contains his last public address, in which he challenges the `Otherness` of German Indology, seeing Germany as fitting a European pattern. These thoroughly researched essays examine the accounts of German travellers to India, the early Indological project of Friendrich schlegel, the politics and history of the university disciplines of Indology and comparative linguistics, the scholarly reception and reaction to the Bhagavadgita and Buddhism, Indology`s relation to racial theory, and more.
