By C. Goekoop

The background of Indian good judgment is approximately divided into 3 classes: previous Nyaya, Buddhist common sense and new Nyaya. each one interval is characterised by means of the creation of a few remarkable Sanskrit textual content. the most texts of the 1st and moment interval were translated into, and defined in, eu languages. however the imperative textual content of the 3rd interval, GaIigesa's Tattvacintamal).i, continues to be now not obtainable via a Western language. the current e-book is meant to refill this hole to some degree. the thing of this examine is to provide either to sanskritists and to logicians an important a part of Indian common sense as laid down within the first sections of the Anumanakhal).c;la of the Tattvacintamal).i. No realization can be paid right here to the doctrines of GaIigesa's predecessors and the theories constructed by means of his commentators. even though this research isn't really con­ cerned with comparative philosophy, Western common sense can be hired for the aim of interpretation. below Western common sense I deliver either conventional good judgment and glossy common sense, which, for my part, shape one self-discipline of reasoning. this can account for my use of a few Latin phrases belonging to scholastic notion. Transliteration and translation were made of the textual content of the Anumitiniriipal).a and Vyaptivada within the Bibliotheca Indica version of GaIigesa's Tattvacintamal).i (with Mathuranatha's commentary), half II Anumanakhal).c;la from Anumiti to Biidha, Calcutta, 1892. A photostatic replica ofthat textual content precedes the transliteration, translation and commentary.

For the sake of completeness we shall give here our symbolic representation of the five definitions of pervasion (vyiipti-pancaka)26, whose formalizations given by Bochenski and Staal have been previously discussed. , (3) as a negation of community oflocus with etc .. g. A's occurrence in a locus of B and A's community of locus with B by (8) (Ex) [(Ey) (Ay ARyx) A(Ey) (By ASyx)]. A's occurrence in a locus of absence of B then is expressed by (9) (Ex) [(Ey) (Ay ARyx) A(y) (By--+ - Syx)]. Its negation, which is the logical content of definitions (1) and (2), is expressed by (10) -(Ex) [(Ey) (Ay ARyx) A(y) (By--+ - Syx)] or by (11) (y) {Ay--+-(Ex) [(z)(Bz--+-SZX)ARyx]}.

Which is positive, involves the use of an inference. 1. salfldigdha-viparyasta-. I have adopted the interpretation of M. 8-12). The assertion to be rejected, then, is: Inference is a valid means of knowledge. One can reject this either (a) by way of doubt (salflsaya) or (b) by way of opposition (viparyaya). 1). In case (a) his denial means: Inference is or is not a valid means of knowledge (anumanalfl pramalJalfl na va); the assertion is considered to be doubtful (salfldigdha). In case (b) the meaning of the denial is: Inference is quite an invalid means of knowledge (anumanam apramalJam eva); the opposite (viparyasta) of the assertion is stated to be true.

E. a locus of the reason is different from what is different from a locus of the probandum. 'A locus of the reason' must be taken here in the sense 'any locus of the reason'. ' Finally, the definiens of definition (4) is formulated: If (C(yB) functions as universal quantifier, the meaning of the definiens will be: Whatever locus of what is different from the probandum you may select, the reason does not occur in it (is absent from it). This corresponds to the translation: the reason's being the counterpositive of an absence which resides in all loci of absence of the probandum.
