Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses Buddhist thesis of inexistence of Self (anātmavāda) that the rest of the Treaty seeks to refute. Cognition, for Buddhist logicians and philosophers of Pratyabhijna, is even more than that because it is still the "means of knowledge" (pramanas) by which the action takes place to know. The Buddhist staged by Utpaladeva began his speech by recalling a distinction fundamental to the Dharmakirti epistemology, between two kinds of cognitions: immediate perception (pratyaksa) or simple event (Prakasa) and concept (vikalpa). The chapter also discusses the argument of the inference of the Self (IPK 1, 2, 3-6). The argument developed by naiyāyika who try to show that the synthesis (anusaṃdhāna, pratisaṃdhāna) of past and present cognitions involved memory constitute proof of the existence of the Self. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: anâtmavâda; Buddhist; cognition; conscious; Dharmakirti; inference; Utpaladeva
