Description: This book endeavors to present the source-materials of Indian logic on an important topic – important passages and extracts from the original Sanskrit texts – in literal English translation followed by detailed notes explaining the cryptic expressions and peculiar terminology of the ancient and medieval Indian philosophers so that an inquisitive reader, even without the mastery of the Sanskrit language, may have a close acquaintance with the original sources. The Sanskrit originals too are given at the end for possible reference and comparison.
