Description

This work clearly marks the principal stages of Indian logic in the vast period of about two thousand years beginning from 640 B.C. and has traced how from Anviksiki – the science of debate, Indian logic developed into the science of knowledge- Pramanasastra, and then into the science of dialectics- Prakarana of Tarkasastra.

The treatment of the subject is both historical and critical. The author has traced some Greek influence on Indian logic. For instance he has shown how the five-membered syllogism of Aristotle found its way through Alexandria, Syria and other countries into Taxila and got amalgamated with the Nyaya doctrine of inference.

The book is one of the pioneer works on the subject. It has drawn on original sources exhaustively. Besides the preface, introduction, foreword and table of contents, the work contains several appendices and indexes.
