    Is space created?: Reflections on śaṇkara's philosophy and philosophy of physics.Jonathan Duquette & K. Ramasubramanian - 2010 - Philosophy East and West 60 (4):517-533.
    Here the concept of "space" is discussed from two different streams of thought: the view held by Advaita Vedānta, as expounded by Śaṇkara, and the view that emerges from the ongoing debates in modern philosophy of physics. The emphasis is on addressing the following question: is space created or not? To set the necessary backdrop for a better appreciation of the debate that evolved within the Indian tradition, we first examine how the Vaiśeṣika and Sāṃkhya schools of thought unfold the (...)

    Anyathākhyāti : A critique by appaya dīkṣita in the parimala. [REVIEW]Jonathan Duquette & K. Ramasubramanian - 2009 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 37 (4):331-347.
    In this paper, the problem of illusory perception, as approached by the Nyāya and Advaita Vedānta schools of philosophy, is discussed from the standpoint of the Parimala. This seminal work belonging to the Bhāmatī tradition of Advaita Vedānta was composed in the sixteenth century by the polymath Appaya Dīkṣita. In the context of discussing various theories of illusion, Dīkṣita dwells upon the Nyāya theory of anyathākhyāti, and its connection with jñānalakṣaṇapratyāsatti as a causal factor for perception, and closely examines if (...)
