The Book entitled 'The Supernormal Means of Knowing : A Navya Nyaya Approach' is the result of the intensive and critical study on the supernormal means of knowledge. It is intended to show that besides the normal ones, there are some supernormal means as well for knowing an object. It consists of the meaning of the term alaukika (supernormal), its incorporation under the category of perception, just as there are problems regarding samanyalaksana, jnanalaksana and yogaja modes of perceiving (three supernormal means). The Buddhists have rejected the hypothesis of samanyalaksana, the Advaita Vedantins have denied jnanalaksana as a form of supernormal perception. The Mlmamsakas also do not admit yogaja pratyaksa showing some reasons. Here an attempt has been made to refute the views of the Buddhists, those of the Advaitins and of the Mlmamsakas and rehabilitate the three extraordinary means following the line of Gangesa and other Navya, Naiyayikas. The problems of ParaPsychology: Extra Sensory Perception also have been dealt with in this book. Yogic perceptions in different systems of Indian Philosophy likeVaisesika, Bauddha, Samkhya, Yoga, Advaita Vedanta, Visistadvaita Vedanta and Jaina have been placed in it. The importance of Yoga has been realized by the contemporary thinkers like Sri Aurobindo, Swami Vivekananda and Rabindranath Tagore. Their views also have been presented in it. The conclusive part of the book deals with some critical and evaluative remarks on the view of the Navya Naiyayikas.Printed Pages: 181.
