Paramananda (1884-1940) came to the United States from what is now Bangladesh in 1906 to assist at the New York Vedanta Center before leaving to form the Vedanta Centre of Boston in 1909. During his life he was responsible for forming multiple centers including, in the US, the Vedanta Centre of Cohasset, Massachusetts and the Ananda Ashram in La Crescenta, California

Vedanta (along with Sankhya, Yoga, Nyaya, Vaisheshika, and Mimamsa) is one of the six Hindu theist philosophies. It focuses heavily on the Upanishads, which center concepts such as Brahman (ultimate reality) and Ātman (soul, self).

This particular volume explores similarities between Greek philosophy, with emphasis on Plato, and Vedic philosophy.
