The present work was originally intended to be a part of a greater collection being compiled on systems of Indian Philosophy. The Plan of the book was that the first part should be devoted to the exposition of all the principal religio-philosophical systems of India, and the second part to the critical examination of these systems. The material for the first part were collected from the original works, published as well as unpublished, of most of the representative writers belonging to the different systems. The work was arranged not historically but in accordance with the different conceptions of causality, which lead to the different philosophical conclusions. The second part was devoted to independent criticism of all those views by the author. After both the parts had been written, The Author engaged himself in a thorough revision of the work. In course of this revision the present work grew much bigger in volume and richer in content than it was originally intended to be. It was particularly so, because the author decided that it would be helpful for the general reader, if the views to be criticized were reproduced in plain and non-technical language just before the analysis and observations on them. The final work is now presented here in the shape of this major treatise, which also contains all the important contributions of the author to the philosophical literature of the country.The work is a significant contribution to a better understanding of the philosophy of religion, and will serve as a resource book for the readers.Printed Pages: 692.
