Abstract : Following discourses on the nature of probability, from aspects of mathematics, economics, and human behavior, and of the Orient, the belief is propounded that the next big step in the progress of fundamental scientific theory will be distinctly oriental in character. Reference is made to the books of Arthur Koestler 'The Sleepwalkers' and 'The Lotus and The Robot' that declare (1) The difficulties of modern times are caused by the disparity between science and religion and (2) Europe as well as Asia should try to answer the 'perplexities and deadlocked problems.'
