In this book, Matilal demonstrates how the work of classical Indian philosophers can inform the study of the philosophy of language. He provides not simply an exposition, but also an analysis of classical theories, allowing the texts to speak for themselves. Specific topics include sphota theory, the word as a unit of sentence, the problem of translation, and an elaboration of Bhatrhari's view of cognition.

Review:

"A must for anyone interested in the philosophy of language and in Indian thought. The work is "technical" but accessible both to Indologists in general and to contemporary analytic philosophers. It demonstrates without question that "India's Contribution to the Study of Language" is at once immense and significant."--Journal of the American Oriental Society "A must for anyone interested in the philosophy of language and in Indian thought.

Synopsis:

Provides an account of the arguments of classical Indian philosophers, Sanskrit grammarians and literary critics about the origins and nature of language, the theories of meaning and the related problem of universals, the connection between the ordinary meaning and the profundity of sense in a literary composition. It also looks into the question of what is sayable, and what can be shown but not said in language. This book is intended for scholars and students of philosophy.
