The Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla, is wedded to such fundamental research themes relevant to humanity, It is with this idea that a cell has been established to undertake research on subjects like  consciousness on the combined bases of science and philosophy. It is with this view that recently some research papers on consciousness have been published by the Institute. The present issue of Summerhill :IIAS Review also contains an analysis of' computer and mind' besides usual reviews. The Summerhill : IIAS Review has been given a new format in order to make it research oriented with critical essays also along with the reviews. I do hope that the present issue, with a changed format, would be welcomed by the scholars and general readers.
