Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In a long passage in his so-called Pramāṇavārtikasvavṛtti, his longest text on this topic, Dharmakīrti –connecting to Dignāga’s Pramāṇasamuccaya, in debate with the rival schools Nyāya, Sāṃkhya, Mimāṃsā etc., in discussing various logical and philosophical problems -- develops a theory on the “import of words”, concept and concept-formation, focusing on the notion of the “exclusion from other” (anyāpoha).
This course consists in a reading of selected passages of the Sanskrit text of the Pramāṇavārtikasvavṛtti (and its Tibetan translation) considering, as case may be, the commentary of Śākyabuddhi (Tibetan) and Karṇakagomin (Sanskrit).
