The question of knowledge brings in its train a host of other contentious issues. What is nature of knowledge? How is it acquried? How do we judge the validity of knowledge? these are questions which have evoked multiple response from the people concerned.Among the six schools of thought the Nyaya philosophy is very much capable to address the above mentioned questions.
Nyaya as a science lays down the rules and methods that are essentially necessary for a clear and precise understanding of all the materials of our knowledge. Almost all the Indian philosophies have been greatly influenced by logical and dialectical technicalities of Nyaya epistemology, which indicated its supremacy in the field of epistemology.
