Raghunātha Śiromaṇi


Raghunātha Śiromaṇi

▪ Indian philosopher

born c. 1475, Navadvīpa, Bengal, India
died c. 1550

      philosopher and logician who brought the New Nyāya school, representing the final development of Indian formal logic, to its zenith of analytic power.

      Raghunātha's analysis of relations revealed the true nature of number, inseparable from the abstraction of natural phenomena, and his studies of metaphysics dealt with the negation or nonexistence of a complex reality. His most famous work in logic was the Tattva-cintāmaṇi-dīdhiti, a commentary on the works of Gaṅgeśa, founder of the New Nyāya school.
