Chapter Summary

This chapter provides a detailed analysis of kārakā and its comments. The arguments that are developed could be attributed to some Vijñānavādin,without difficulty, and the proximity of Buddhist idealism and that of Pratyabhijñā appears with utmost clarity. It agrees however to keep in mind that it is only a first step in demonstration of Utpaladeva: the second is in fact as a breach of the Buddhist idealism, and seeks to highlight the differences between the Pratyabhijñā of Vijñānavādin. The chapter is devoted to the elucidation of concise definition of the idealism of Pratyabhijñā. Utpaladeva, however, undertakes to develop the second argument showing that the perception remains inexplicable in the externalist prospect. Brahmanic and Buddhist externalists conceive the consciousness as an entity distinct from objects, and consist of the illumination or the demonstration of the objects. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Brahmanic exterbalist; Buddhist externalist; Buddhist idealism; Pratyabhijña; Utpaladeva; Vijñanavadin
