2 Karl H. Potter & Piotr Balcerowicz
Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies (Vol;ume 17) Jain Philosophy (Part III))

Acontribution of Janinism to Indian philosophy which seems most stimulating, inspiring, debated and controversial, one which provoked the most opposition from other systems of India, is beyond doubt the doctrine of multiplexity of reality (anekantavada). Indisputably it is also the most interesting Jaina contribution to Indian philosophy. The doctrine involved both a very particular realist ontology as well as a corresponding epistemology that was structured in such a way as to most aptly handle certain ontological presuppositions.The Jaina ontology entailed by the doctrine of multiplexity of reality (anekantavada) viewed the world structure as consisting of four interrelated aspects: substance (dravya), quality (guna), mode (paryaya) and ineffable, transient occurrence (vivarta, vartana, often overlooked in both Jaina expositions of the theory and in analyses carried out by modern researchers). Howerver, the point to emphasise is that things, especially when conceived as substances, were believed to preserve their identity and in this aspect they were immutable and permanent. At the same time, however, when conceived as modes, they appeared to change and transform continuously. This seemed to have led to contradictions in ontology. Besides, in order to explain the process of change, Jaina ontology also distinguished three modes of existence, that actually co-existed: origination (utpada, udaya), continued existence (sthiti, dhrauvya) and cessation, or disintegration (bhanga, vyaya, japavarga). These four closely corresponded to the Buddhist Sarvastivadaís and Abhidharmaís four (or three) conditioned factors, known as ëmarkersí (samskrtalaksana)óorigination (utpada), continuity (sthiti), deterioration (jara, vyaya) and extinction (bhanga, nirodha).Printed Pages: 432. 102134

3 Karl H. Potter and Piotr Balcerowicz (eds.)
Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies: Vol. XIV: Jain Philosophy (Part II)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8120836154 / 9788120836150; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Covering Jaina philosophy from where Volume Ten left off toward the end of the tenth century, this Volume covers 355 works of 99 Jain philosophers who lived between 1000 and 1300 A.D. The names of a number of famous Jaina authors are covered in the list along with summaries of many of their works. Piotr Balcerowicz' article on the Jaina theory of viewpoints or perspective (naya), which introduces this Volume, shows how that theory, set forth in the famous account of seven fold predication (saptapadarthi), avoids skepticism, contradiction, or violation of the law of excluded middle, while presenting a plausible, if complex, way of gauging reality.
