Book Description

About The Book

Copleston published this book in the last decade of nineteenth century and, mainly, addressed to Europeans. Exactly one century after its first publication the present edition, in the context of secularization, is addressed not only to Europeans but to others, as well.

Secularization or in other words 'De divinization of human consciousness' an historical process has created a crisis of conscience for a modern man who has lost faith in the existence of God, but wants to become a Saint. The people with similar crisis of conscience, can fruitfully seek guidance from the Buddha an Asian from ancient India who discovered the path to solve the 'only problem', which not only modern Europe is seized with, but is also influencing the rest of the civilized world. The Buddha delineated the path which can lead such reasonable persons to discover the Nibbanic state of mind and consequently become Saints, arahats in Buddhist terminology, however, without professing faith in Almighty God, thus simultaneously resolve the crisis and solve the 'only problem.'
