Navya-Nyaya Theory of Verbal Cognition: Critical Study of Gadadhara's Vyutpattivada

V.P. Bhatta (Author)
Synopsis Navya-nyaya theory of verbal cognition, the Vyutpattivada; is the single most important treatise of Gadadhara Bhattacharya on Sabda, in general and on sentence meaning in particular. It is exclusively devoted to the establishment of Gadadhara’s original views on how verbal cognition or sentence-meaning is produced from sentence. While the Saktivada deals with the theories of individual word-meanings and the role of expressive power in the understanding of word-meanings, the Vyutpattivada deals with the sentence-meaning and the role of samsargamaryada in understanding sentence-meaning. Thus, when studied with the Saktivada, it gives a comprehensive account of the Navya-nyaya theory of word and sentence-meaning. The present edition of the Vyutpattivada, which is being published in two volumes, contains an introduction, original Sanskrit text, and English translation along with exhaustive explanatory notes. As Gadadhara has used sophisticated Navya-nyaya style in the composition of the Vyutpattivada, Dr. Bhatta’s introduction and explanatory notes will prove to be of immense value to the students and the scholars of Indian Philosophy and linguistics in the understanding of the Vyutpattivada.
