Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Coward's perspective on yoga is erudite and committed. For those who thought they could practice yoga without the issue of faith arising, this book will be a challenging experience.— Metapsychology

"Like Coward's previous comparative studies, this work is exemplary in its scrupulous, detailed analysis, balanced comparison, and clarity of presentation."— Religion & Theology

"This interesting and elegantly composed book shows the important relationship between Indian philosophy and the development of the modern discipline of psychology."— Christopher Key Chapple, author of Nonviolence to Animals, Earth, and Self in Asian Traditions"
