Nyaya (school of philosophy)Source: Shodhganga: A study of Nyāya-vaiśeṣika categories
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”.
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.

[Sanskrit to German]
Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
