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 The unpublished papers included in this book were all written during 1974.—75, when I was a Visiting Fellow at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study in Shimla, and I thank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.
