An Essay on Classical Indian Theories of Knowledge
Bimal Krishna Matilal
A Clarendon Press Publication
This book defends a form of realism known as Naive Realism or Direct Realism. Also known as Nyaya Realism, this book reconstructs Nyaya arguments to meet objections from both the Buddhists and the sense-data representationalists. The author places philosophical concerns over historical concerns, demonstrating that some epistemological problems are universal and not confined to one particular cultural tradition.
