Doubt, Belief and Knowledge
Doubt, Belief and Knowledge
Description

From the Jacket:

 

This volume deals with some questions about doubt and belief, but mainly with various aspects and forms of knowing and different types of objects of knowledge - the nature of logical laws, contradiction, paradox, a priori truths, universals - and also with the problem of induction. The last three chapters deal mainly with the Navya-Nyaya theory of cognition and its different forms.

About the Author:

Sibajiban Bhattacharyya, formerly Acharya B.N. Seal Professor of Mental and Moral Science at Calcutta University, is a distinguished philosopher. His contributions in the field of modern logic and Navya-Nyaya have received international acclaim. He taught philosophy at Saugar, Burdwan, Visva-Bharati and North-Bengal universities. Currently, he is Director of the Institute of Universal Spiritual Values at the Asiatic Society, Calcutta. Professor Bhattacharyya has published a large number of scholarly papers in various learned journals both in India and abroad. His pioneering works include Gadadhara's Visayatavada (text edited with notes, introduction and English translation).

 

Preface

This is a collection of papers, many published and some un-published, written between 1955 and 1975, although some have appeared in print only recently. These papers deal with some questions about doubt and belief, but mainly with various aspects and forms of knowing and different types of objects y of knowledge—the nature of logical laws, contradiction, paradox, a priori truths, universals—and also with the problem of induction. The last three papers deal mainly with the Navya— Nyaya theory of cognition and its different forms. The unpublished papers included in this book were all written during 1974.—75, when I was a Visiting Fellow at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study in Shimla, and I thank Professor S. C. Dube, the then Director of the Institute, for providing me with everything I needed to complete my work. The Indian Council of Philosophical Research has undertaken to publish this collection of papers in the form of a book and I am grateful to the Council for its interest in my work.

All always packed with care, delivered in a timely, no hassle fashion. Your business is very trustworthy and I am so glad to have when I need to look for something.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Thanks to all the staff at Exotic Art for helping me acquire these wonderful books from the holy land of Bharata Varsha. Happy new year to you all and all glories to Sri Krsna, peace...
J. Idehen, UK
Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
