Short biography
Paul Jakob Deussen (German pronunciation: [ˈpaʊl ˈjaːkop ˈdɔʏsən]; January 7, 1845 – July 6, 1919) was a German Orientalist and Sanskrit scholar. Strongly influenced by Arthur Schopenhauer, Deussen was a friend of Friedrich Nietzsche and Swami Vivekananda. In 1911, he founded the Schopenhauer Society (Schopenhauer-Gesellschaft). Professor Deussen was the first editor, in 1912, of the scholarly journal Schopenhauer Yearbook (Schopenhauer-Jahrbuch).  Deussen, who 'Sanskritised' his name to ‘Deva-Sena’ as a mark of his admiration for Hinduism, is one of the distinguished roll of Europeans who — often with lyrical admiration — participated in the scholarly Western discovery of Sanskrit and Hinduism which took place in British India itself, Germany, France and England.  (Wikipedia: Paul Deussen)
