Jayantabhaṭṭa (जयन्तभट्ट) (ninth–tenth century), the great Naiyāyika from Kashmir, was a close reader of Kumārila’s work. Like him, he ascribes authority to branches of knowledge or ‘sciences’ (vidyā, vidyāsthāna) that derive from the Vedic tradition.
Nyaya (न्याय, nyaya) refers to a school of Hindu philosophy (astika), drawing its subject-matter from the Upanishads. The Nyaya philosophy is known for its theories on logic, methodology and epistemology, however, it is closely related with Vaisheshika in terms of metaphysics.
