Two books, one by M. Kapstein, the other a joint effort headed up by E. Steinkellner, raise questions of the study of Indian philosophy, Buddhism and Confucianism. Although the two books were published eight years apart, they share a comparative perspective of and a reflection on the possibility of philosophy in Asia and Buddhism. The present review article first offers general considerations on the aims of authors with a brief survey of each article contributed to the second book. It then addresses various issues raised by Kapstein's discussions.
