In the Philosophy of Hinduism - Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, has explained the central features of faiths of Hinduism, its philosophical and spiritual doctrine, religious experience, ethical character and traditional faiths. Hinduism is a process and not a result, a growing tradition and not a fixed revelation as in other faiths. He has compared the Christanity, Islam and Buddhism in the light of Hinduism and stressed that ultimate aim of these religions is the attaintment of universal self. The analysis of religions is highly intellectual and balanced looking to whole hearted response he received for these lectures in U.K. He has been then aclaimed as another Vivekananda. The articles in the book reflect the mind of this great philosopher.
