CONTEXT-SENSITIVITY IN JAIN PHILOSOPHY. A DIALOGICAL STUDY OF SIDDHARS . IGAN . I'S COMMENTARY ON THE HANDBOOK OF LOGIC

Abstract : In classical India, Jain philosophers developed a theory of viewpoints (naya-v¯ ada) according to which any statement is always performed within and dependent upon a given epistemic perspective or viewpoint. The Jainas furnished this epistemology with an (epistemic) theory of disputation that takes into account the viewpoint in which the main thesis has been stated. The main aim of our paper is to delve into the Jain notion of viewpoint-contextualisation and to develop the elements of a suitable logical system that should offer a reconstruction of the Jainas' epistemic theory of disputation. A crucial step of our project is to approach the Jain theory of disputa-tion with the help of a theory of meaning for logical constants based on argumentative practices called dialogical logic. Since in the dialogical framework the meaning of the logical constants is given by the norms or rules for their use in a debate, it provides a meaning theory closer to the Jain context-sensitive disputation theory than the mainstream formal model-theoretic semantics.
