Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In a long section 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., and in discussing various logical and philosophical problems -- develops a theory of the “import of words”, concept and concept-formation etc., focusing on the notion of the “exclusion from other” (anyāpoha).
This course consists in a reading of selected passages from the Sanskrit text of the Pramāṇavārtikasvavṛtti (and its Tibetan translation) considering, as case may be, the commentary of Śākyabuddhi (Tibetan) and Karṇakagomin (Sanskrit). We will start with the summary verses PV I.76-91 and continue with PV I.92 + PVSV
