After this three are thirty-five articles which deal with different branches of Philosophy, viz., philosophical logic philosophy of language, ontology, theory of knowledge, Kant, exegesis, moral philosophy, social philosophy, philosophy of art. As Sen’s philosophical interests and expertize were wide, the authors had ample freedom in their choice of topics. The next part of the book contains replies to eleven papers given by Sen in his brilliant analytic style. Sen read all the thirty-five papers, but in spite of his best intention, could not write the other replies because of his sudden demise.
