The present English translation of the original Sanskrit text is being published along with the commentary on the text by Sankara Misra and Jaya-Narayana. Tarkapanchanana elaborating and explaining the concepts basic to the subject.

    Being the basic work on this important school of Indian philosophy, the present translation is indispensable alike for the students and teachers of Indian philosophy.
