(p.26) 7 Truth in Jainism
Chaturvedi Badrinath

Tulsi Badrinath

Oxford University Press

In this essay, Badrinath points out the two different frameworks of perceiving man and the world: one is that of the modern Western political thought and the philosophy of law; and the other is that of dharma and its method that characterizes the journey of Indian civilization. What is at the very heart of human diversities, and therefore of human freedom, is the question of truth, which is perceived by different people in different ways. Anekanta-vada, Badrinath says, demonstrates how all human perceptions are only partially true, that is, they are true only conditionally.

Keywords:   dharma, anekanta-vada, Indian civilization, perceptions of truth, Jainism
