According to one of the most fundamental tenets in Indian Buddhist epistemology, there are only two means of knowledge, perception and inference, because there are only two objects of knowledge, the particular and the universal. The present monograph deals with this tenet as it was expounded and substantiated in Dharmakirti's (7th c.) magnum opus, the Pramanavarttika, a work that has exerted lasting influence on Buddhist philosophy in India and Tibet up to the present day.
