Nyaya Sutras of Gautama Text

The Nyaya-sutra s probably were composed by Gautama or Akshapada about the 2nd century bce , though there is ample evidence that many sutra s were subsequently interpolated. The sutra s are divided into five chapters, each with two sections. The work begins with a statement of the subject matter, the purpose, and the relation of the subject matter to the attainment of that purpose. The ultimate purpose is salvation —i. The words knowledge , buddhi , and consciousness are used synonymously. Four means of valid knowledge are admitted: perception, inference , comparison, and verbal testimony.


Nyaya Sutra

The text consists of five books, with two chapters in each book, with a cumulative total of aphoristic Sutras, about rules of reason, logic, epistemology and metaphysics. The Nyaya Sutras is a Hindu text, notable for focusing on knowledge and logic, and making no mention of Vedic rituals. The first book is structured as a general introduction and table of contents of sixteen categories of knowledge. Book two is about pramana epistemology , book three is about prameya or the objects of knowledge, and the text discusses the nature of knowledge in remaining books.
