Epistemology in Pracina and Navya Nyaya contains some ten essays which try to give an idea of Nyaya epistemology, not entirely from the point of view of Navya Nyaya. The views o both the schools have been taken into consideration and an attempt has been made to show how Vaisesika forms the link between them. The author also tries to look at Nyaya epistemology from the standpoint of contemporary Western epistemology and this he does by concentrating mostly on general issues in epistemology.
