Nataliya Kanaeva. “Vinaya Vijaya Maharaja. “Nayakarnikā”

The publication contains the translation of jaina treatise (1651) on important epistemological conception – naya-vāda (the conception of ‘standpoints’) and preliminary notes. Naya-vāda was explored by jainas as a part of their theory of many-sidedness (anekānta-vāda) for destroying of all ‘one-sided’ philosophical systems of their opponents and for obtaining the Absolute Wisdom.
