Asymmetrical relations arer we may Kinds of Relations +s say, the most characteristically relational of relations, and the most important to the philosopher who wishes to study the ultimate logical nature of relations. e, relations which at most one term can have to a given term. Such are father, mother, husband (except in Tibet), square of, sine of, and so on. But parent, squareroot, and so on, are not one-many. It is possible, formally, to replace all relations by one-many relations by means of a device.

The space-relationsin the map have " likeness" to the space-relations in the country mapped. It is this kind of connection between relations that we wish to define. We *"y, in the first place, profitably introduce a certain restriction. e. to such as permit of the formation of a single class out of the domain and the converse domain.
