According to one of the most fundamental tenets in Indian
Buddhist epistemology, there are only two means of
knowledge, perception and inference, because there are only
two objects of knowledge, the particular and the universal.
The present monograph deals with this tenet as it was
expounded and substantiated in Dharmak=rti’s (7th c.)
magnum opus, the Pramanavarttika, a work that
has exertedlasting influence on Buddhist philosophy in India
and Tibet up to the present day.

Eli Franco is Professor of Indology at
Leipzig University.

Miyako Notake is a lecturer at Waseda University, Tokyo.
