Abstract

<p>Abstract:</p><p>This essay evaluates the philosophical merits of the Pratyabhijñā Śaiva critique of Dharmakīrti&apos;s stance that the judgment of sameness that constitutes a concept formed via exclusion (apoha) does not require ultimate grounding, and presents these Śaivas&apos; account of the relationship between time, reality, and concepts. These Śaivas argue that time is the expression, as the subject/object pairs that define conventional worlds, of the non-dual differentiation inherent in ultimate reality—and use Dharmakīrti&apos;s own apoha theory to explain how this works.</p>
