Asian Horizons

Giuseppe Tucci's Buddhist, Indian, Himalayan and Central Asian Studies

Edited by: A A Di Castro, David Templeman

This gedenkschrift is published in honor of the great scholar of Asia, Professor Giuseppe Tucci (1894-1984). Through the work of present-day scholars, the book represents their efforts to maintain the impetus of the profound legacy left by Tucci. He is renowned to this day as a founding scholar in an extraordinarily wide variety of cultural disciplines (philosophy, religion, etc.), as well as being an explorer of hitherto largely unknown lands, such as Tibet. Giuseppe Tucci gained a deep knowledge of Asia through a familiarity with the people, the places, and the literature, and his contribution to modern scholarship is nothing less than remarkable. The book reflects the broad variety of topics in which Tucci himself displayed deep interest and serves as an homage to his work.
