Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 079143740X, Paperback)

The last work of the eminent philosopher Bimal Krishna Matilal, this book traces the origins of logical theory in India.
"It is a lucid presentation on a most difficult topic. Only a great scholar and teacher like Matilal could have produced such a book. It covers a large field with ease and grace." -- J. N. Mohanty, Emory University
The Character of Logic in India is the last work of the eminent philosopher Bimal Krishna Matilal. It traces the origins of logical theory in India, with chapters on the general characteristics of Indian logic, the analysis of debate, Dinnaga and the triple-conditioned sign, Dharmakirti and the problem of induction, the Jaina contribution to logic, and later developments in Navya-Nyaya.
"This book is a kind of scholarly and personal testament to an important and influential author, who was one of the exemplary mediators between Indian and Western thought in the twentieth century. Matilal was equally committed to the rational and methodological traditions of Indian thought and to the analytical standards of modern Western thought, and his combination of expertise in both areas was unique. The Character of Logic in India shows great pedagogical skills and makes concepts and problems which are not very familiar to most Western readers as transparent and clear as possible." -- Wilhelm Halbfass, University of Pennsylvania
