Saptapadārthī (सप्तपदार्थी) of Śivāditya is regarded as the first syncretic work [of Nyāya and Vaiśeṣika], because Śivāditya tries to combine the two systems. In the syncretic school the seven categories accepted by the Vaiśeṣikas and the four pramāṇas accepted by the Naiyāyikas are treated together. According to Radhakrishnan, the author Śivāditya was later than Udayana and earlier than Gaṅgeśa. His work “Saptapadārthī presents the Nyāya-Vaiśeṣika principles as part of one whole. It starts as an exposition of the categories and introduces the Nyāya logic under the quality of cognition”.
