Cognition of Cognition: A Commentary on Pandit Visvabandhu
Cognition of Cognition: A Commentary on Pandit Visvabandhu
Description
About the Book

This book is not only a commentary on Pandit Visvabandhu articles on anuvyavasaya but also contains explanations of several concepts which are indispensable for understanding Indian philosophy, especially the Nyaya system. The book addresses the question: How do we cognize a cognition?

In addition to a critical examination of 3 views on this subject, the book discusses other topics such as types of cognition, meaning, causality, perception, inference and fallacies.

This book will be very useful to students of Indian Philosophy as well as to professionals in this field for understanding some of the key concepts of logic, epistemology, and philosophy of language. Moreover, these concepts and techniques may be used for solving some of the problems of Western philosophy.

Pandit Visvabandhu Tarkatirtha, one of the few distinguished scholars of Indian philosophy, is not only well-versed in Navya-Nyaya, but also in Vedanta, especially the Advaita Vedanta. After having taught for more than fifty years at several universities and colleges he is now a Visiting Professor at the Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture. A creative scholar, he has published several books and articles on Navya-Nyaya and Vedanta in Sanskrit as well as in Bengali.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
