This is the first book in the Series. Scholars and Prophets deals with the historical genesis of the long and rich scholarship on India in France since the beginning of 19th century, with particular reference to the work of Louis Dumont It considers the works of scholars and the essayists, poets, or esotericists who published on India and shows that Dumont has been influenced by both groups.
