Voltaire on Pythagoras’s Visit to India : Science from East to West



http://ancientindians.wordpress.com/2009/08/25/positive-statements-of-western-thinkers-on-ancient-indian-philosophy/

There is a a very strong school of thought that knowledge originally went from India to Greece and to China. Here are some pointers to that, as well as a glance at the nobel lauretes, scientists and writers who belong to that school of thought. It also shows the connection that those thinkers found between modern physics (quantum and relatavistic) and upanishadic thought.
