Nyaya (school of philosophy)
Nyāyavaiśeṣika (न्यायवैशेषिक).—After 10th century A.D., i.e. after the time of Udayana, these two schools [Nyāya and Vaiśeṣika] came nearer and became amalgamated to give rise to a new school which is treated as the syncretic school of Nyāya-Vaiśeṣika. Udayana was the last person who represented the earlier phase these systems. But it was Udayana who really paved the way for syncretism of these systems by treating them as an integral school. “Udayana considers the Nyāya and Vaiśeṣika not as two distinct schools but as forming one integral school. He has incorporated the ontology of the Vaiśeṣika with the epistemology of Nyāya and attempted to bring about a syncretism between the two”.
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.
