Search for the Absolute in Neo-Vedanta

This book by the legendary K.C. Bhattacharyya is a collection of three essays which belong to three distinct phases of the development of KCB’s philosophical thought. In these phases he defines the Absolute as Indefinite, then the Absolute as  Subject, and then the Absolute as Alternation. The essays are
  1. The Place of the Indefinite in Logic
  2. The Subject as Freedom
  3. The Concept of the Absolute and its Alternative Forms
The first essay was written in a phase where KCB defined the Absolute as Indefinite in accordance with the Upaniṣadic doctrine that Brahman or Ātman has been defined negatively. He was however also influenced by Hegel and together these two influences led him to speak of the Logic of the Indefinite.
