    Proof for the Existence of God in Classical Indian Philosophy.John Vattanky - 2007 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 12 (1):1 - 15.
    Both in the East and in the West, there is, apart from the religious approach to God, also a purely rational one. Although in India philosophical speculation on God was mostly inextricably bound to religion, there have also been purely rational developments in Indian theodicy. This is the case above all in the Nyayavaisesika system, where we find a purely rational and logical approach to the question of the existence and nature of God. It is the specific contribution of the (...)

    Philosophy of Indian Logic From a Comparative Perspective.John Vattanky - 2007 - The Proceedings of the Twenty-First World Congress of Philosophy 7:179-183.
    One of the classical systems of Indian Philosophy is specially concerned with the problems of logic c This system is called Nyaya which has a long history of about two thousand years. In the extent of the literature it has produced and in the depth of the philosophical problems it discusses, it is of considerable interest and importance. However, the spirit of pure rationality in which Nyaya discusses these problems and the techniques it makes use of in handling them are (...)

    A System of Indian Logic: The Nyāya Theory of Inference—Analysis, Text, Translation and Interpretation of the Anumāna Section of Kārikāvalī, Muktāvali and Dinakarī.John Vattanky - 2003 - New York, NY, USA: Routledge.
    Nyana is the most rational and logical of all the classical Indian philosophical systems. In the study of Nyana philosophy, Karikavali with its commentary Muktavali, both by Visvanatha Nyayapancanana, with the commentaries Dinakari and Ramarudri, have been of decisive significance for the last few centuries as advanced introductions to this subject. The present work concentrates on inference in Karikavali, Muktavali and Dinakari, carefully divided into significant units according to the subject, and translates and interprets them. Its commentary makes use of (...)

    From this detailed analysis, comparison and study of the treatises of G. and S., we are in a position to arrivent certain conclusions. The similarity between the treatises of G. and S. is so close, both in structure and content, that we cannot explain it in any way other than to conclude that G. depends on S. for the composition of his work. It can further be concluded that, in the present state of research, there is no reason to suppose (...)
