"The present volume of the Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies takes up the history of Nyaya-Vaisesika where Volume Two left off, in the 14th century. With Gangesa we enter the literature that has come to be known as Navyanyaya, i.e., 'new Nyaya. ' Gangesa's seminal work, the Tattvacintamani, is one of the most famous, as well as most difficult, works of Indian Philosophy and this Volume begins with the most exhaustive account of its contents hitherto available. Over a dozen different summarizers have collaborated in preparing this treatise which totals some 300 pages. The volume reconstructs the development of Nyaya-Vaisesika through the next two centuries. Some fifty author's names are known to us from this period, and 36 of their works are summarized. The volume closes its reconstruction of literary history into the early 16th century, with Raghunatha Siromani, the great commentator on Gangesa's seminal works and one of the most innovative analytical philosophers and the world has known.
