Item description for Friedrich Max Muller: A Life Devoted to the Humanities (Numen Book Series, 94) by Lourens Van Den Bosch & Lourens Peter Van Den Bosch...
Friedrich Max Muller was one of the great scholars of the 19th century. His studies on the history and nature of religion were of great interest to both scholarly and more popular circles, and he was for a long time an influential figure in the cultural life of Victorian Britain. This volume presents a survey of Muller's life and his main ideas on language, mythology, religion, Christianity and the missions, as well as his philosophy of religion. The last chapter deals with the legacy of Muller's ideas in the 20th century. The work should be suitable for historians of religion interested in the origin of the science of religion and for historians specialising in the history of ideas.
