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.
