Description Contents
 
One of the most marked signs of the times is the close attention that is being paid to psychological research, the results of which are being followed with the greatest interest by an intelligent public, and the continued advance of which promised to be one of the most hopeful activities of modern science. The observation, analysis, and classification of mental phenomena are being pursued with untiring energy and the problems of mind attacked on all sides with refreshing vigour. In brief the new science of psychology seems to promise at no distant date to become one of the most fruitful field of human tillage. But in turn where we will to our manual or special studies we find no reference to the patient work of any centuries accomplished by the introspective genius of the east. In this field none have laboured with greater industry and acumen than the Buddhist thinkers, whose whole philosophy and therewith also their religion rests on a psychological basis. Not only so, but some of their main contentions are very dominant schools of modern research. The work of these profound analysts of the nature of mind should, therefore, by no means be neglected by modern psychologists and those who are interested in their instructive labours, and who that desires to know himself can fail to be so interested? It must however by admitted that there is some excuse for previous neglect owing to the lack of books designed to smooth the way with oriental studies.
