On Being and What There Is: Classical Vaiaseosika and the History of Indian Ontology

By Wilhelm Halbfass | Go to book overview

Glossary:
Ontological Terms
in Classical Vaiśeṣika

The purpose of this glossary is to facilitate the use of the book and to provide a convenient survey of some of the more prominent and significant terms used and discussed in the preceding chapters. The glossary is limited to ontological and categoriological terms found in the classical Vaiśeṣika texts and commentaries (including pūrvapakṣa sections and pertinent doxographic sources) and some allied Nyāya works. It does not include Navyanyāya terminology. In general, the translations or paraphrases correspond to those used in the text of the book. They indicate only those meanings and connotations which are relevant in the context of Vaiśeṣika ontology. For further explanations and interpretations, as well as for additional terminology, the index has to be consulted.

abhāva nonexistence, nonentity, absence (the seventh category in later Nyāya-Vaiśeṣika)
adhidheyatva nameability, semantic identifiability
abhivyakti manifestation, actualization
abhūtvā bhāvaḥ (bhavanam) (coming into) existence after prior nonexistence
ādhāra basis, substrate
