This book is a defence of the form of realism which stands closest to that upheld by the Nyāya–Vaíṣsika school in classical India. The book presents the Nyāya view and critically examines it against that of its traditional opponent, the Buddhist version of phenomenalism and idealism. This reconstruction of Nyāya arguments meets not only traditional Buddhist objections but also those of modern sense-data representationalists.

Keywords: realism; Nyāya; Vaíṣsika; classical India; Buddhist; phenomenalism; idealism; Nyāya arguments; sense-data representationalists
