The summaries of the main sources that follow concentrate on the philosophical ideas contained therein, so that philosophers who are unable to read the original Sanskrit can get an idea of the positions taken and arguments offered. Covered in this text are chapters on Metaphysics, Epistemology, word-meaning and sentence meaning, Accounts of Vedic literature like Yaska's 'Nirukta', Panini's 'Astadhyayi', Patanjali's 'Mahabhasya' and 80 other accounts. An exhaustive bibliography of original and secondary writings on the philosophy of grammar is included. Cumulative Index is also given.
