Confluence of Minds: The Rabindranath Tagore and Patrick Geddes Reader on Education and Environment (2017)

Edited by Bashabi Fraser, Tapati Mukherjee and Amrit Sen (Special Advisor: Neil Fraser),  Visva-Bharati Press, Santinikaten, India; Luath Press, Edinburgh.

This book is a further product of the collaborative project which led to the Scottish orientalism book. It is a collection of some of the most relevant writings on education and the environment by Rabindranath Tagore from India and Patrick Geddes from Scotland, two great minds who knew each other, respected each other and exchanged letters between 1918 and 1930. They were radical thinkers on both education and the environment, a confluence of minds in spite of their different backgrounds, one a poet, the other a scientist and planner.
