Artha: Meaning

Jonardon Ganeri

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book covers sakti and artha, and specifically relates them to the significance of testimony and the epistemology of meaning in the Indian discussion. It pays attention to thinkers in the various grammatical and philosophical schools, primarily emphasizing on the school of Nyaya, whose authors entered into an extraordinary, rich and diverse discussion of the problem of meaning over a period of some fifteen centuries. It argues that their ideas speak strongly to contemporary concerns in the philosophy of language. The sections of the book correspond to schools roughly as follows: Grammarian theories of meaning; Mima?saka theories of meaning; Buddhist theories of meaning; early Naiyayika theories of meaning; Navya-Naiyayika theories of meaning; and Vedantin theories of meaning.
