<p>Abstract:</p><p>In post-DignÄga Buddhist epistemology, non-conceptual cognition (<i>nirvikalpajÃ±Äna</i>) comes to be construed as a sort of pre-reflective and self-intimating feature of <i>all</i> states of cognition. In earlier Buddhist Äbhidharmika exegesis, however, the closest candidate for non-conceptual cognition is the notion that the five sense consciousnesses apprehend their object-supports directly, as opposed to the sixth consciousnessâmind consciousness (<i>manovÄ³ Ã±Äna</i>)âwhich alone has the capacity for conceptual discrimination. In an oft -repeated example, visual consciousness is said to know "blue" but not "this is blue"; it is mind consciousness that knows "this is blue." This article explores the diï¬ culties that early Buddhist exegetes encountered as they tried to make sense of immediate, non-conceptual cognition.</p>
