The Character of Logic in India
In this book, Matilal brings together two decades of thought about the origins, development, and nature of Indian logical theory. Matilal brings to bear his distinctive and sophisticated treatment of the philosophical issues, in which our understanding of the theories of the classical Indian writers is enriched by concepts drawn from contemporary analytical theory.
