We now propose to give a brief survey of the contents of this Volume. The first paper is a monograph entitled 'The Absolutist's standpoint in Logic'. It discusses an interesting and intriguing problem which scepticism and metaphysical absolutism necessarily entailed because of their denial of the validity of the logical categories. This problem could not have arisen if formal consistency alone had been deemed a justifiable logical criterion. But even the sceptics could not give a wide berth to the commitment of Indian logic to the material truth of the syllogistic argument. It may not be idle to presume that this problem of Indian logic will have an interest for the modern mind.
We now propose to give a running survey of the subject-matter of the contents. The first article is entitled 'The Omniscient as the Founder of Religion.' It treats of a subject, which has not only a religious appeal but a metaphysical interest. It was suggested by the late Sir Brajendra Nath Seal, the then George V Professor of Philosophy in Calcutta University in about 1930, that this subject should be studied and presented to the modern world with its metaphysical foundation. The writer also felt that the problem did not outlive its interest and utility. The second article is entitled 'The Nature of Ultimate Reality', and it has been tackled from the standpoint of diverse Schools of Indian philosophy.
