Logic, Language and Reality : Indian Philosophy and Contemporary Issues

This is a book on Indian philosophy. Its aim is to combine the discipline of philosophy with that of philosophical research. It is not, however, concerned primarily with historical research. The book deals with the problems of Indian philosophy--problems which are necessarily philosophical, in the sense of being logical, epistemological, ontological and soteriological. All the problems discussed here are interconnected in some way or other, and it is reasonable to expect that a systematic account of classical Indian philosophy will emerge from a discussion of such topics.

The book is meant for philosophers along with those interested in Sanskrit, Indian Studies and what may be called a global approach to the study of philosophy.

Problems of inference lead to the discussion of philosophical logic. Historically, the early Nyaya in India was succeeded by what we call Navya-nyaya in the 12th-13th century A.D. Philosophers of this period were involved in the discussion of such problems as empty terms, reference-failure, double negation, concomitance, definition, classification and essences. All these issues constitute the second chapter here.
