In Hinduism

Mīmāṃsā (school of philosophy)

Source: academia.edu: Religious Inclusivism in the Writings of an Early Modern Sanskrit Intellectual (mimamsa)

Anumeya (अनुमेय) refers to “that which can be inferred” (e.g., lost Vedic texts whose existence can only be ‘inferred’).—Kumārila argues in the Tantravārttika 1.3.11-12, that the Kalpasūtras have a higher status than smṛti texts: while the former expand upon rules of sacrificial procedures described in directly perceivable (pratyakṣa) Vedic texts, the latter are compilations based presumably upon lost Vedic texts whose existence can only be inferred (anumeya). However, Kumārila refuses to ascribe them full ‘vedicness’ because of their essentially ancillary status. Likewise, Śaivāgamas are not mere smṛti texts for Appaya, yet they are not on a par with the Veda; they only possess authority thanks to their dependence on the Veda.

Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)

Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions (philosophy)

Anumeya (अनुमेय) refers to the “object of inference” [?], according to the Īśvarapratyabhijñāvimarśinī 1.178.—Accordingly, “And there is no argument proving [the existence] of the [external object], and the main (mukhya) [argument] refuting (bādhaka) [its existence] amounts to this much: the fact that there [can] be no manifestation (prakāśana) [of it] even as a [mere] object of inference (anumeya) if [this object] is distinct from the manifesting consciousness (prakāśa)?”.
