Buddhism in Eyes of Intellectuals

Buddha has seen deeper than modern idealists
“Gautama got rid of even that shade of a shadow of permanent existence by a metaphysical tour de force of great interest to the student of philosophy, seeing that it supplies the wanting half of Bishop Berkeley's well-known idealist argument.  It is a remarkable indication of the subtlety of Indian speculation that Gautama should have seen deeper than the greatest of modem idealists.  The tendency of enlightened thought of all today all the world over is not towards theology, but philosophy and psychology.  The bark of theological dualism is drifting into danger.  The fundamental principles of evolution and monism are being accepted by the thoughtful.” 
Prof. Huxley.  "Evolution And Ethics"
