Chapter Summary

With both men nursing a natural affinity for the concerns of methodology in the study of religion, it was natural that Garry Trompf should meet Cristiano Camporesi; and they did, in 1993. Professor Camporesi came to Sydney from his base at the University of Florence in that year, carrying with him his latest book, Max Müller: la malattia del linguaggio e la malattia del pensiero, a work that traced its heritage in part to Garry's early work on Müller and this figure's influence on the appearance of the discipline of Comparative Religion. Professor Camporesi was fascinated with the finer details of British Imperial thought and he traced with exacting scholarship nineteenth century ideas in Western European philosophy, thus his Entente cordiale: figure del realismo critico nell'educazione tra Francia e imperio britannico (1999) and his Scepsi scientifica: fenomenismo e agnosticismo nella filosofia Britannica dell'Ottocento (1985).

Keywords: British Imperial thought; comparative religion; Cristiano Camporesi; scholarship nineteenth century ideas; Western European philosophy
