India and Beyond: Aspects of Literature, Meaning, Ritual and Thought : Essays in Honour of Frits Staal

Voorkant
Kegan Paul, 1997 - 696 pagina's
Thirty-four contributors address a variety of topics, from ancestral worship to transsexual masquerades, from metrical verse in the psalms to temples, poetic expression and linguistic performances. They bespeak the unique characteristics of Staal and his ability to break down barriers between academic disciplines. With contributors from around the world, this is a tribute to the forty years of scholarly work Frits Staal has invested in the foundation of a genuinely human science.
