Topic: Dharmakirti


  
  Dharmakirti - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dharmakirti (circa 7th century), was an Indian scholar and one of the Buddhist founders of Indian philosophical logic.
Born around the turn of the 7th century, Dharmakirti was a South Indian Brahman and became a teacher at the famed Nalanda University, as well as a poet.
Dharmakirti presents most of his ideas in the guise of commentary on Dignaga's works, even if his theories go beyond what was presented by his predecessor.
