Expanding and Merging Horizons: Contributions to South Asian and Cross-Cultural Studies in Commemoration of Wilhelm Halbfass. (BKGA 56.) Wien: VÖAW, 2007 (order online). (732 S.)

This volume is dedicated to the memory of the Indologist and philosopher Wilhelm Halbfass (1940–2000), a thinker who mediated in a singular manner between the Indian and European intellectual worlds. It pays tribute to his contribution to a philosophically differentiated and methodically reflected understanding of the history of Indian thought, especially the history of philosophy and the history of the intellectual meeting of India and Europe. The contributions to this volume document the disciplines and various areas in the study of Indian intellectual history upon which Halbfass' work had an inspiring effect. Following the foreword by E. Franco, articles by 48 authors are thematically arranged into six chapters.
