Sample text

1 The real deve­ lopment of the Nyäya philosophy may be legitimately believed to commence with Uddyotakara, who, on his own avowal, derived his incentive to write his commentary from the hostile critics, whose sophistical (according to Uddyotakara) arguments went a long way to bring discredit on the Nyäya Philosophy. Uddyotakara’ s taciturnity in regard to names is notorious. Väcaspati Misra has supplied the lacuna and tells us that it was the adverse criticism of Dignäga and men of his ilk that gave the much-needed fillip to Uddyotakara for writing his master­ piece.

But, however formidable might have been these Buddhist philosophies, the most upsetting were the dialectics of Dignäga and Dharmakirti and their redoubtable successors. This is INTRODUCTION xlv evidenced by the vitriolic attacks of the Brähmanical and Jaina philosophical writings of the period. The present work concerns itself with this school of Buddhist philosophy and logic. It is the result of long years of study and thought. The present writer has endeavoured to present the philosophy of Dignäga’ s school with all its strength and purity.

This has not stood in the way of a school of American Realists from describing their system of philosophy as ‘ critica l/ For similar reasons I too have not hesitated to adopt this expressive term in my designation of the realistic philosophy of Dignäga’ s school. I felt that to put the same label on this philosophy and on that of the NyäyaVawesika school would be inappropriate and rather misleading. In fact, the philosophy of Dignäga’ s school, in so far as it is realistic, will be found to have greater affinities with Kant’s philosophy than with the commonsense naive Realism of the Nyäya-Vaisesika and Mvmämsä schools.
