This book examines psycho-physical dualism as developed by the Nyaya school of Indian philosophy.

Dualism is important to many world religions which promote personal immortality and to morality which promotes free will. For the Nyaya, the self is a permanent, immaterial substance to which non-physical internal states like cognition belong. This view is challenged by other Indian schools, especially the Buddhist and Carvaka schools. Chakrabarti brings out the connections between the Indian and the Western debates over the mindbody problem and shows that the Nyaya position is well developed, well articulated, and defensible.

He shows that Nyaya dualism differs from Cartesian dualism and is not vulnerable to some traditional objections against the latter. A brief discussion of the Samkhya and the Advaita theories of the self and the critique of these views from the Nyaya standpoint are included, as well as a discussion of a classical Nyaya causal argument for the existence of God.

The appendix contains an annotated translation of selected portions of Udayana`s masterpiece, Atmatattvaviveka (Discerning the Nature of the Self).

About the Author:

Kisor Kumar Chakrabarti is the Forrest S. and Jean B. Williams Professor, Ferrum College. He is the author of The Logic of Gotama and Definition and Induction.

Review:

"One may, however, safely say that in Shri Kisor Kumar Chakrabarti, Nyaya Philosophy has found an able exponent."
