The Nyāyamañjari (10th century CE) by Jayanta Bhatta is a Sanskrit literary treatise on the Nyāya school of philosophy, but can be regarded as an independent work. Nyāya (“method”) is one of the six orthodox schools of Hinduism who accept the authority of the Vedas, primarily dealing with logic, methodology and metaphysics.
