Anekāntavāda And Syādvāda: The Doctrine Of Anekānta

Published: 03.04.2012

The doctrine of Anekānta is the heart of Jaina ontology, epistemology and logic. It claims the indeterminateness of reality, its knowledge and its verbal expression. If reality is infinitely manifold, logically there must be infinite ways of intellectually cognizing it and verbally: expressing its infinite aspects. This presupposition enables one to harmonize various apparently contradictory descriptions of reality. This doctrine of Anekānta also serves as a beacon in studying the epistemological problem of the meaning of 'Meaning'.
