Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit Literature
Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit Literature
By: Sukumari Bhattacharji
Our Price: $12.00
Members Price: $10.80

The urge to study Buddhist Hybrid literature came to me when I tried to judge how far the theory of the Dark Age in Sanskrit literature was tenable. Sifting the material I was confirmed in the view that here was an invaluable source of information for a clearer and deeper understanding of the epics and Puranas as well as a considerable portion of later Sanskrit literature.

Dignaga's Philosophy of Language
Dignaga's Philosophy of Language: Pramanasamuccayavrtti on Anyapoha. Part I and Part II
By: Ole Holten Pind
Our Price: $128.00
Members Price: $115.20

The Buddhist philosopher Dignaga (around 500 CE) centers his philosophy of language on the theorem of verbal meaning as "exclusion of other referents" (anyapoha). This is the topic of the fifth chapter in his summarizing last work, the Pramanasamuccayavrtti. Since a word tells its hearer something about the object to which it refers in the same way that a logical reason tells its observer something about the object of which it is a property, Dignaga's apoha thesis is a crucial complement to his theory of inference.
