In this book, Dr. Radhakrishnan, the greatest interpreter of Indian philosophy, examines Indian culture as a whole. He does this from various angles including the religious and the scientific, the mystic and the mundane.

With inimitable felicity and vigour of style he brings together scattered institutions and ideas, whether literary or political, social, religious or economic: and conclusively shows how these have made the sort of nation that India is today. Contemporary savants like Vivekananda, Gandhi and Nehru were guided by the same beacon-light of tradition. It is only Dr. Radhakrishnan who could have made this storehouse of knowledge and experience available to the common reader as to the close student. Between the covers of this book the author has given us a compact study of India's rich cultural heritage which is as profound as it is meaningful and thorough.
