Summary

Originally published in 1952, this book forms the second of two volumes based on the Gifford Lectures delivered at the University of Edinburgh in 1919 and 1921. The first volume, Mind and Matter, was originally published in 1931. The text provides a philosophical discussion of the nature and limits of knowledge, examining the relationship between mind and the conception of a universal truth. Essential to this discussion is the idea of the idea of the part as being inconceivable in the absence of a totalising wholeness of being. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in philosophy, psychology and theories of knowledge.
