Two Ancient Dialectical Logics: saptbhangi and catuskoti

Journal of Indian Council of Philosophical Research. 2011. Vol. 27. No. 1. P. 47-76.

A rational interpretation is proposed for two ancient Indian logics: the Jaina saptabhangi, and the Madhyamika catuskoti. It is argued that the irrationality currently imputed to these logics relies upon some philosophical preconceptions inherited from Aristotelian metaphysics. This misunderstanding can be corrected in two steps: by recalling their assumptions about truth; by reconstructing their ensuing theory of judgment within a common conceptual framework.
