REVIEWS 271 David Seyfort Ruegg, Ordre spirituel et ordre temporel dans la pens ee bouddhique de l’Inde et du Tibet . Quatre conf erences au Coll ege de France (Publications de l’Institut de Civilisation Indienne, fascicule 64 ). Diffusion De Boccard, Paris, 1995. 172 pp., FF 170,–. ISBN 2-86803-064-5. This book by Professor Seyfort Ruegg derives from a series of four lectures given by him at Coll ege de France in November 1992, which have considerably been retouched and enlarged. It comprises two separate studies entitled a) ‘Materials for the History of the Functions Pertaining to the Officiating Spiritual Teacher-cum-Donee on the One Hand and the Royal Donor on the Other and of Their Relationship’; b) ‘Religious Science and the Secular Sciences in India and Tibet; Remarks on the Nature and Goals of Indo-Tibetan Studies’. Since even the titles of these two main parts of the book hint at the great complexity of the topics discussed in it, in the helpful and detailed foreword the key technical terms are clarified and an overview is given of the themes dealt with together with welcome methodological remarks (pp. 7–12). The contents of the foreword are presented again in the English
