Description

The muktavali and its commentaries have been the most popular standard work on Navyanyaya. Yet no systematic translation and interpretation of these works are available in any modern language. Though there were some attempts to translate Muktavali, this is the first time that an attempt has been made to translate Dinakari into any modern language, Indian or Western.

This solid introduction addressed to the serious students of Nyaya thought on sabda is lucid and it is intended to give them a first hand knowledte of all the salient features of the Nyaya Philosophy of Language.
