Competing World Views: Perspectivism and Polemics in the Satya-śāsana-parīkṣā and Other Jaina Works [Book Review]

Journal of Indian Philosophy 40 (1):25-45 (2012)
Jaina authors use a pluralistic epistemological model as a tool to claim the superiority of Jainism over the other schools of Indian thought. In this article the general tendency of the Jaina’s epistemic pluralism is discussed and it is shown how the Digambara Jaina Vidyānandin tries to establish the Jainas’ pluralism on rational grounds by identifying erroneous epistemic alternatives through methodological falsification.
