In this volume the Swami deals with different arrays of thoughts and problems of philosophy and religion, their ups and downs in connection with the ever evolving phases of the human societies, their harmonies and disharmonies, their various distinctive features and characteristics, their additions and alterations, adjustments and readjustments, and also their divergent ways of approaching the ultimate goal. Besides these, his is a clear and unifying vision of a universal ideal that binds the different schools of thoughts, both of philosophy and religion of the world into a synthetic unity of love and brotherhood.
