Excerpt from Sanskrit and Its Kindred Literatures, Studies in Comparative Mythology
This is not an encyclopaedia: therefore every author will not be found in it. It is an attempt, first, so to interest people in' the new discoveries in literature as to induce them to study for them selves; in order to do this, only the greatest writers have been mentioned, and long extracts given from their works to illustrate the Opinions stated; second, to put all literature upon that new basis which has been created by the new sciences of comparative philology and compara tive mythology. For this reason the greatest space has been given to the Sanskrit literature, which caused these discoveries, contains so many elements of all literature, and is so much less familiar. Some apology is perhaps necessary for writing anything upon the Greek philosophers.
