Chapter 3

Diplomatic Edition

Research: Pascale Hugon, Toshikazu Watanabe, Prof. Takashi Iwata

The Pramāṇaviniścayaṭīkā by the eighth-century Indian Buddhist scholar Dharmottara is an extensive commentary on Dharmakīrti's Pramāṇaviniścaya.
A diplomatic edition of the third chapter (the chapter on "proof") is being prepared on the basis of a copy of an incomplete palm-leaf manuscript (codex unicus, 120 extant folios, 40 folios missing) of the Sanskrit original in Proto-Bengali script.
Collaborative work on this edition is being carried out by researchers at the IKGA (Pascale Hugon, Toshikazu Watanabe) and at Waseda University (Prof. Takashi Iwata and his team).
The transcription of the text has been completed and checked, and the diplomatic edition is currently being finalized in view of a publication in the near future.

Chapter 3, Segment of Pretexts (hetvābhāsa)

Research: Toshikazu Watanabe

Aim of this project is (i) a critical edition of the "Segment of Pretexts" (hetvābhāsa) in Dharmottara's commentary Pramāṇaviniścayaṭīkā (PVinṬ) on Dharmakīrti's Pramāṇaviniścaya (PVin) 3, vv. 68–85ab, and (ii) a translation of these two segments in PVinṬ and PVin including notes. Moreover, this critical edition will also be built on a Sanskrit manuscript of the PVinṬ, which has only recently been made accessible. This important project will broaden our comprehension of the intellectual setting at the time of Dharmakīrti (ca. AD 600–660) and Dharmottara (ca. 740–800), as well as our knowledge concerning philosophical changes and accomplishments archieved by these two philosophers.
