Nyaya (school of philosophy)
Navyanyāya (नव्यन्याय, “neo-logic”) later on the Nyāya works started to give stress on pure logic and dialectics. As a result there developed a new trend among the Nyāya scholars which is termed as Navya-Nyāya (Neo Logic). The first work of Navya-Nyāya school is Tattvacintāmaṇi which was written by Gaṅgesa Upādhyāya in about 1200 A.D. Through this work he made the base of Navya-Nyāya in Mithilā. Raghunātha Śiromaṇi is regarded as the second great figure of Navya- Nyāya school, whose commentary on Tattvacintāmaṇi is called Dīdhiti.
The Navya-Nyāya system evolved a special kind of language which is different from language used in Sanskrit literature. The new language used in Sanskrit logicians made it perfect and useful for all branches of Sanskrit study. The technique of this system is different from the earlier works. It is excellent and incomparable. The famous features of it are the appropriate and extreme thoroughness of analysis. The development of this system becomes on behalf of its own technique of interpretation.
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.
