Mahamahopadhyay Satis Chandra Vidyabhusana's History of the Mediaeval School of Indian Logic is a pioneering work on the two principal systems of Indian logic namely the Jaina and Buddhist and covers the period between A.D. 400 and 1200. Generally designated as Nyaya-sastra, Tarka-sastra, Hetu-vidya, Pramana-sastra, etc., logic was considered an important branch of knowledge and seems to have enjoyed a wide popularity as is evident from various works on logic and numerous commentaries. Of the two schools of logic covered in the present work, the Jaina school flourished mainly in Malwa, Gujarat, Patna, and Karnataka while the Buddhist school flourished in Gandhara, Ayodhya, the Deccan, Kashmir, Bengal and Bihar. The Author has made full use of rare Jaina manuscripts preserved in Western India and the Deccan and Tibetan translations of Sanskrit works on Buddhist logic. History of the Mediaeval School of Indian Logic is an extremely important contribution to the subject and is a must for all those interested in this branch of study.
