This volume deals with some questions about doubt and belief, but mainly with various aspects and forms of knowing and different types of objects of knowledge-- the nature of logical laws, contradiction, paradox, a priori truths, universals-- and also with the problem of induction. The last three chapters deal mainly with the Navya-Nyaya theory of cognition and its different forms.
