Review quote

'This book widely covers the entire range of logical reasoning in Indian thought. At several places we comes across astute interpretations of Indian logic by various scholars. The unique contours and distinctive features of Indian logic by comparing and contrasting it with Western logic are effectively elucidated by the authors of the articles. Even the subtle nuances among the Indian theories of logical reasoning are well substantiated in the course of their argument. For these findings the editor deserves appreciationl.' - The Hindu
