about

This book is a defence of a form of realism which stands closest to that upheld by the Nyaya-Vaid'sesika school in classical India. The author presents the Nyaya view and critically examines it against that of its traditional opponent, the Buddhist version of phenomenalism and idealism. Hisreconstruction of Nyaya arguments meets not only traditional Buddhist objections but also those of modern sense-data representationalists.

Editorial Reviews

`His approach has the enormous merit of providing for the possibility of fruitfully approaching the contributions on Indian thinkers as seminal material for contemporary philosophical inquiry ... part of the intellectual excitement of reading the book is in the many possibilities for futurephilosophical research that it opens up.'Journal of Asian Studies
