In Indian tradition, the Nyayashastra has been stated to be the central organ of perception and for the matter of that it stands out as the model of righteousness and chief stay of the ideas. It would not be out of place to remark that Nyaya, as a coherent branch of philosophy, has provided meaning, structure and form to the Indian thought process much in the same way as Aristotle has canonized Western speculation around an organized philosophic principle. Since its inception in Gautama and till Gangeshopadhyaya and even otherwise beyond, the Nyayashastra has precisely retained its hold over speculation and intellectional conditions by bringing Sutra, Bhasya, Vritti and Prakarana to the contemplation of reason. Erudites such as Phanibhushan Tarkavagish, Ganganath Jha, Goipinath Kaviraj and Anantalal Thakur were amongst the masters of this tradition of thought in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Of these, the Nyaya principles embodied upon Tarkavagish's contemplations remain one of the foundations of the whole system. His Nyaya-Darshana, originally written in Bangla, whose Hindi rendering on Lakshanasutra of Nyaya-Darshana has been produced in this volume, is one of the brilliant texts illustrating Nyaya-Darshana in a formulaic manner. The merit of this text that explains and illustrates the basic structure of Nyaya in its totality and fullness is mainly underlain in the fact that it enables the readers to become one and all with its premises just as an able teacher facilitates a disciple to recreate knowledge into conviction. For the similar reasons, the present text that traces the growth and development of an analytical mode of philosophic learning over a period of 2,000 years is certainly a well- worth collection.

About the Author:

Sushil Kumar Saxena (b. 1921) is widely known today as a scholar who has shown the way to look at Indian music, rhythm, and dance in the way of contemporary Western aesthetics. As a professor of philosophy at Delhi University, he distinguished himself with his very first book, Studies in the Metaphysics of Bradley (1967) published by George Allen & Unwin, London, and Humanities Press, New York, in their prestigious Muirhead Library series of philosophical works.

Dr Saxena introduced the teaching of aesthetics at Delhi University in 1964; and, since his retirement in 1986, has published a steady stream of scholarly papers in internationally reputed journals through the 1970s and 80s. What is more, he has produced six books on Hindustani music, rhythm and Kathak dance, besides a work on philosophy of religion, Ever Unto God: Essays on Gandhi and Religion (1988). His latest book is Hindustani Sangeet: Some Perspectives, Some Performers (Sangeet Natak Akademi, and D.K. Printworld 2010).

For all this scholarly work, Prof. Saxena has been honoured by Sangeet Natak Akademi with its Annual Award (2007) and its fellowship in 2008. He was bestowed the state honour, Padma Bhushan, also in 2008.

Book Description D K Printworld, 2015. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. In Indian tradition, the Nyayashastra has been stated to be the central organ of perception and for the matter of that it stands out as the model of righteousness and chief stay of the ideas. It would not be out of place to remark that Nyaya, as a coherent branch of philosophy, has provided meaning, structure and form to the Indian thought process much in the same way as Aristotle has canonized Western speculation around an organized philosophic principle. Since its inception in Gautama and till Gangeshopadhyaya and even otherwise beyond, the Nyayashastra has precisely retained its hold over speculation and intellectional conditions by bringing Sutra, Bhasya, Vritti and Prakarana to the contemplation of reason. Erudites such as Phanibhushan Tarkavagish, Ganganath Jha, Goipinath Kaviraj and Anantalal Thakur were amongst the masters of this tradition of thought in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Of these, the Nyaya principles embodied upon Tarkavagish's contemplations remain one of the foundations of the whole system.

The merit of this text that explains and illustrates the basic structure of Nyaya in its totality and fullness is mainly underlain in the fact that it enables the readers to become one and all with its premises just as an able teacher facilitates a disciple to recreate knowledge into conviction.
