Parasitism and Disjunctivism in Nyāya Epistemology

Parasitism and Disjunctivism in Nyāya Epistemology Abstract: This article examines a number of arguments I collectively term arguments from parasitism, which Nyāya employs to illustrate that rational reflection, the institution of language, and even error itself presuppose a ground-level basis of veridical cognitive interaction with the world. It further suggests that by such arguments, coupled with its stress on the inerrancy of pramāṇ a s, Nyāya anticipates and supports the contemporary philosophical movement known as (epistemological) disjunctivism. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Philosophy East and West University of Hawai'I Press

Abstract

Abstract: This article examines a number of arguments I collectively term arguments from parasitism, which Nyāya employs to illustrate that rational reflection, the institution of language, and even error itself presuppose a ground-level basis of veridical cognitive interaction with the world. It further suggests that by such arguments, coupled with its stress on the inerrancy of pramāṇ a s, Nyāya anticipates and supports the contemporary philosophical movement known as (epistemological) disjunctivism.
