4. Brief about the Course Philosophy as a subject is an attempt to arrive at a rational conception of reality as a whole. It enquires into the nature of the universe in which we live, the nature of the human soul and its destiny, nature of God or the Absolute and their relation to one another. It enquires into the nature of matter, time, space, the evolution of life and mind and their relation to one another.

In short, it is an art of thinking all things rationally, logically and persistently as a whole. It examines and clarifies popular, scientific and ethical concepts of right good values and virtues. It is thus a rational attempt to integrate our knowledge and interpret and unify our experience.
