About Book :
"In Indian tradition, the Nyayashastra has been stated to be the central organ of perception and for the matter of that it stands out as the model of righteousness and chief stay of the ideas. It would not be out of place to remark that Nyaya, as a coherent branch of philosophy, has provided meaning, structure and form to the Indian thought process much in the same way as Aristotle has canonized Western speculation around an organized philosophic principle. Since its inception in Gautama and till Gangeshopadhyaya and even otherwise beyond, the Nyayashastra has precisely retained its hold over speculation and intellectional conditions by bringing Sutra, Bhasya, Vritti and Prakarana to the contemplation of reason.His Nyaya-Darshana, originally written in Bangla, whose Hindi rendering on Lakshanasutra of Nyaya-Darshana has been produced in this volume, is one of the brilliant tets illustrating Nyaya-Darshana in a formulaic manner.
