    Professor Yuuichi Kajiyama, Emeritus Professor of Buddhist Studies at Kyoto University, died on March 29, 2004, at the age of 79. He treated several topics in Buddhist studies with sharp insight and elucidated many unexplored fields through his clear investigations. We could have expected still many more results from him. This is indeed an irrecoverable loss to the Buddhist Studies world.
    The 1989 volume (Rinsen, Kyoto), a collection of his articles in Western languages was produced as an expression of gratitude from his students, on the occasion of his retirement from the Faculty of Letters of Kyoto University in March 1988. Prof. Kajiyama's research covered several branches of Indian Mahāyāna Buddhism. We can enumerate the following five topics as his main subjects: (1) Madhyamaka philosophy, (2) Mahāyāna suutras, among others the Prajňāpāramitāsūtra, (3) Buddhist logic and epistemology, (4) analysis of the doctrinal positions of several Buddhist schools, and (5) Chinese and Japanese Buddhist thought from the perspective of Indian Buddhist philosophy. This publication of his collected articles therefore made accessible in a single volume the fruits of more than thirty years of research. Being out of print since longtime, its reprint had been awaited. We are therefore glad to be able to present it now with minor emendations on the occasion of the first anniversary of his death.
    The publication of his post-1989 articles in Western languages will be also undertaken by Rinsen in the near future.
