The present volume of the Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies takes up the history of Nyaya-Vaisesika where Volume Two left off, in the 14th century. It reconstructs the development of Nyaya-Vaisesika through the next two centuries. Some fifty author's names are known to us from this period, and 36 of their works are summarized. The volume closes its reconstruction of literary history into the early 16th century, with Raghunatha Siromani, the great commentator on Gangesa's seminal works and one of the most innovative analytical philosophers and the world has known.

Although this is but a brief attempt to cover the complex literature of this period, this Volume represents the basic elements of present-day understanding of the contributions of the philosophers discussed. A detailed introduction by the two Editors provides a bird's-eye view of the ideas expounded in the text. A total of 22 different scholars combine to render the gist of these materials available to the general public. Subsequent volumes in this series will take Nyaya-Vaisesika to the present.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Tuesday 01 August, 2006.
