Inference and Fallacies Discussed in Ancient Indian Logic

Pradeep P. Gokhale (Author)
Synopsis Aksapada, Vatsyayana, Udyotakara, Jayantabhatta, Vacaspatimisra, and Bhasarvajna as the ancient Nyaya thinkers and Dinnaga and Dharmakirti as the Buddhist logicians did elucidate in their works the nature of anumana and hervabhasa; but in doing so they also developed over the conceptions of the same available at their times. One of the major tasks of Dr. Pradeep Gokhale in this book is to sketch out the way in which the two concepts changed and developed at the hands of these logicians.

The Indian account of fallacies has also been compared critically with western one.
