Vaiśeṣika Studies Across the World

  • ShashiPrabha Kumar
Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter, it is intended to highlight the recent researches in the field of Vaiśeṣika philosophy – both textual and contextual. However, the main focus here will be on the later aspect (since the former has already been discussed in another chapter); but the same is also selective and not comprehensive. Accordingly the contribution of a few international scholars* to Vaiśeṣika school of Indian philosophy is being presented in this chapter.
