Abstract

Rabindranath Tagore and Albert Einstein met each other several times. Two of their meetings, one in July and the other in August of 1930 in Germany, provide us with scholastic dialogues between them that are very relevant to newer phenomenological discourses.

J. Walsh). The issue is not available here. However a typescript of the same is kept in the Rabindra-Bhavana archives (Visva-Bharati University, Santiniketan) under the call no. T928 F3 TT. An edited version of the conversation was reprinted in Asia March 1937 (pp. 151–152), one similar to the version given in Sangit-Chinta.
