A collection of 21 lectures delivered at the Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture by Vivekananda Professor of Indology and Indological Research. The author deals with Swami Vivekananda's approach to four of our six systems of philosophy and his observations based on Swamiji's references to them in the eight volumes of his Complete Works. As a supplement to this material, he deals with Swamiji's approach to the Upanishads and the Bhagavadgita. Swamiji's ideas of comparative religion, his response to Western Indology, Western philosophy and his view of history are here discussed perhaps for the first time in some detail.
