    Meaning and Metaphor in the Early Nyāya School.Payal Doctor - 2012 - Journal of Indian Philosophy and Religion 17:38-67.
    In the Nyāya school of Classical Indian Philosophy, the concept of word meaning is described in detail; however, the theory of metaphor seems to clash with the theory of word meaning. This paper explores the theory of meaning in the early Nyāya theory and whether metaphor is compatible with it. The Nyāya theory of meaning is a 'basis for application' model: words pick out references because of the conventions and practices of use. Yet, these words can come to refer to (...)

    Quotations, References, and the Re-Use of Texts in the Early Nyāya Tradition.Payal Doctor - 2015 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 43 (2-3):109-135.
    In this case-study, I examine examples which fall within the five categories of the re-use of texts in the Nyāya Sūtra, Nyāya Bhāṣya, and Nyāya Vārttika and note the form of quoting and embedment. It is found that the re-use of texts is prominent and that the category and method of embedding the re-used passages varies from author to author.

  3. Tatparya and Paraphrase.Payal Doctor - 2014 - Journal of Indian Philosophy and Religion 19:27-45.
    In the acquisition of verbal knowledge, the Nyāya school outlines four conditions of a linguistic utterance that must be met: āsatti, ākāṅkṣā, tātparya, and yogyatā. I will follow the traditional Nyāya view that is it one of the four necessary conditions that enable a hearer to gain verbal knowledge. The reasoning behind retaining tātparya as a condition of verbal knowledge, is that it provides a resource with which to clarify ambiguity when contextual factors cannot. It also provides a context for (...)

  4. The Force Awakens: The Individualistic and Contemporary Heroine.Payal Doctor - 2017 - North American Notes Online.
    Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is not the hero’s journey as George Lucas previously conceptualized it. Instead, the story line of The Force Awakens leads me to believe that it creates a new iteration of the hero myth. It follows the contemporary heroine’s journey while conforming to the essential construct of the hero monomyth. First, the contemporary heroine’s journey focuses primarily on the greater good and secondarily on her own personal journey, which is the converse of the traditional (...)
