THE METAPHYSICS OF THE SPIRIT
The Metaphysics of the Spirit is a collection of addresses delivered by eminent Indian philosophers as General Presidents in the annual sessions of the Indian Philosophical Congress since its inception in 1925. The need to collect all the available addresses was felt several years ago. Most of them could be obtained excluding a few , they have now been arranged thematically in three volumes containing seventeen addresses each:
Volume 1 : The Metaphysics of the Spirit ;
Volume 2 : Indian Philosophy and History ;
Volume 3 : Problems of Indian Philosophy.
The collection , undoubtedly, will prove to be very useful to researchers and students of contemporary Indian philosophy. It will also give a fairly good idea of the directions in which twentieth century Indian philosophy has been moving since the mid-thirties.
