Materials for the Study of Navya-Nyaya Logic
Description

From the Jacket

This volume of the Harvard Oriental Series introduces the inquisitive reader to the mosaic of Navya-nyaya, one of the most highly developed schools in Indian thought system that took shape in the thirteenth century AD. The adherents of this school, known as Naiyayikas, moved with equal ease in the intricacies of all disciplines - epistemology, physics, grammar, etc. - but their distinctive contribution lay in the field of logic in which 'they created a new style and method.'

In the words of the author: 'The metaphysical basis of Navya-nyaya is realistic, yet its logic is formal....' And further: 'There are a number of points where Navya-nyaya appears definitely superior to Aristotelian logic...In its concept of number it seems to anticipate mathematical logic by several centuries.' 

The discussion begins with biographical notes of intellectual stalwarts who founded and shaped the school. This is followed by an examination of some theories and techniques applied by the adepts in the 'new style and method' of logical argumentation. The focus is then turned on Vyapti-pancaka of Gangesa, the foundation father of the school; on Mathuranatha's commentary on it; and on extracts from Didhiti of Raghunatha, the most brilliant among all Naiyayikas, who led and established the radical wing of the school. Exhaustive works of reference, and both Sanskrit and English indexes enrich the text.

The volume is reprinted after thirty-six years of its first publication in 1951.
