Logic being of great importance in relation to every department of investigation and study, the students of all the three Departments, Law, Science, and Literature, are instructed during their first yeur in this subject, in addition to the more special ones of their respective courses.

Text-books :-Jevons' Elementary Lessons in Logic; Everett's Science of Thought.

Philosophy is divided into Oriental and European ; in Oriental Philosophy the History of Philosophy is taught during the second year, and Hindoo and Chinese Philosophy during the third and fourth years.

(1) The History of Oriental Philosophy :—To study the historical development of Oriental philosophy, Hindoo, and Chinese philosophy are the most important subjects to be considered; but as Japanese philosophy originated principally from Chinese philosophy, and as the recent Chinese philosophy was founded upon the philosophy which prevailed before the Shin and Kan dynasties, Confucianism and several branches of Taoism are therefore taken up; their systems and principles are discussed; their relations, historical courses, and several branches are investigated so as to lead the students to the general field of Oriental philosophy. The books of reference are Rongo, Moshi, Daigaku, Chiuyo, Roshi, Soji, Resshi. Junshi, Bokushi, Kanpishi, Yoshisauron, Yoshihogen, Kanshi and Yenanji.

(2) Hindoo and Chinese Philosophy:

In this course of lectures, the systems and principles of Buddhism and Confucianism are briefly taught during the third and fourth years, and in the fourth year,

lectures on Taoism are also given. The text-books are Hatshiu. Koyo, Hogiohen, Shikiogi, Yuimakio, Daigaku, Chiuyo, Rongo, Moshi, Shikio, Shokio, Yeki, Roshi, and Soji.

In European Philosophy, Psychology, History of Philosophy and Sociology, are taught for the second Modern Philosophy for the third year, and Psychology and Moral and Aesthetic philosophy for the fourth year.

(1) Psychology :-(For Second year.)

A systematic exposition of Mind and the First Principles of Philosophy. The student is instructed in the Physiology of the Mind, and is made to see that there exists a very close connexion between the body and the

that the mind is no such absolute autocrat as has been imagined by some metaphysicians, but that all its actions, including volition itself, are not independent of the states of the organism.

The books used :-Bain's Mental Science; Carpenter's Mental Physiology ; Maudsley's Physiology and Pathology of the Mind; Abercrombie's Intellectual Powers of the Mind; Haeckel's History of Creation ; Spencer's First Principles of Philosophy ; Spencer's Principles of Biology; Spencer's Principles of Psychology, etc.

(2) History of Philosophy :

An outline of the history of ancient and modern European Philosophy. The larger share of attention will be given to modern Philosophy from Descartes to Hegel and Spencer. The aim will be to discover some unity under


lying the whole movement, and not merely to make independent study of isolated systems. This forms a valuable introduction to the special study of present working systems. Lectures, with Schwegler's History, and Bowen's Modern Philosophy as reference books.

(8) Sociology

An outline. Sufficiently distinct to exhibit the more important of the mechanical conditions under which alone any Philosophical end can be realized. Lectures, with reference to Spencer's Sociology, and Morgan's Ancient Society.

(4) Modern European Philosophy :

In this course will be studied in greater detail the systems of three of the most eminent of modern thinkers ; but light will be thrown upon them by constant comparison with the views of others. The systems are those of Kant, Hegel, and Spencer, selected as having the most important bearing upon problems of the present day.

The books used will be Kant's Critique, Wallace's Logic of Hegel, and Spencer's Principles of Psychology Vol. II, together with portions of Mill's Examination of Hamilton, and portions of Hume's Human Nature. Lectures.

(5) Psychology :-(For Fourth year)

A more advanced course in Psychology and also the study of such subjects as the following,--the comparison of the mental powers of man and the lower animals; mental evolution during primaeval and civilized times; emotional and intellectual language in animals and man; volition in culture.

The Books used :--
