Description: This book is a study on Gangesa’s Pramanyavada and contains a free English translation of the Sanskrit text. The introduction discusses the concept of truth in Indian Philosophy, chiefly in the Nyaya and Mimamsa schools, and seeks to bring out Gangesa’s contributions to this topic. At the same time, it attempts a critical assessment of the arguments and assumptions of the traditional Pramanya theories.
