The Greeks in India
A Survey in Philosophical Understanding


This book relates to the history of the ideological presence of the Greeks in India. Unlike the previous works, which have been focused on particular historical periods, the present study aims to present the literary and religio-philosophic character of the Greeks in India as they interact with the Indians and the Indian culture from the earliest times to the present.

“After reading Vassiliades’ work, I am convinced that the Greeks in India, whose significance has been rather neglected in the past by both Western and Indian scholars, shall be recognized in the future as pioneers in the formative stages of the global family’s advancement.”

Dr. R.R. Pandey (Prof. & Head , Department of Philosophy & Religion, Banaras Hindu University)
