  • I have one question.
    In Jaina Theory of Reality I have to write about Anekantavada and syavada.Does i have to write also about substance also .please correct me
  • edited June 2016
    @piyushsabarwal If question on 'theory of reality', i think write in short about classification depending upon the demand of question. I focus on completeness of answers. If on syadvad and anekantvad, not necessary to write about substance. And never forget to write critic especially for inconsistent philosophers like jain, samkhya

    Thanks a lot
  • @piyushsabarwal: No need to write on Dravya in this Q. Write about Anekantvad. Explain it. Then link Anekantvad (Metaphysics) with Syadvad (Epistemology). Then discuss Saptbhanginaya as a result of Syadvad.

    While, discussing Saptbhanginaya, you have scope to talk about Dravya. Do it if you can do it deftly.
  • One fresher is here,hav to join philosophy aug batch of patanjali

    Actually when theory of reality is asked, I would write Anekantavada, and then about Dravya - Jaina view of atoms, soul etc. and only maybe mention Syadavada and Saptabhanginaya in conclusion (in terms of how they fit into Jaina metaphysics). To me, theory of reality is metaphysics.

    Agreed that Samkhya is inconsistent but how can you say that Jaina philosophy is inconsistent?
    What I cannot do:
    Spell "Antecedent".

    What I can do:
    Crack CSE.
  • Hello.
    I am joining vajiram this month.
    They asked about the duly filled application form, about which form they are referring to.
    Help me please.


  • Agreed that Samkhya is inconsistent but how can you say that Jaina philosophy is inconsistent?

    They have accepted anekantvad but they have not synthesised reality of manyniess into a single reality. Later on they allow ultimate reality like thing to creep in through backdoor like their concept of Keivalya

  • Fresher for 2017. I arranged Mitra's IAS notes somehow from a distant friend. Are those enough alongside the books mentioned or do I need to attend the coaching as well. please throw some insights whether to go for coaching or self study from the notes. If anyone attended Mitra's coaching, his/her suggestions will be of great help.
  • Vajiram was never good in Philosophy! sorry but this is my opinion. Per me Dr. Avinash Sinha's approach is far different from rest. If you have an opportunity then I would say you must try his classes at Aashram IAS in Delhi.

    I don't know why ppl are against patanjali...I found patanjalti better than mitras... During 2014 mains I insisted mitra sir so much to tell me my mistakes but he said u write very nice and I got dropped in mains just coz of philosophy... And when I wrote the same answer for patanjali dharmendra sir told me many mistakes... I regretted that I joined mitras for test series.. Mitra sir is very humble and nice person ..he never sees our mistake but this exam is about identifying mistakes well in advance..
    About others I have no idea
    all i need is You Lord
  • test series koun si bhai vsion ya patanjali??

    They have accepted anekantvad but they have not synthesised reality of manyniess into a single reality. Later on they allow ultimate reality like thing to creep in through backdoor like their concept of Keivalya
    i dont think its the correct expalaination for its inconsistency. Their inconsitency was in their saptbhanginyaya statetments which were self contradictory to each other. But to say of their inconsitency on the basis of ultimate reality is not correct at such. They bring out the concept of kevaliya to expalin why plurality of objective reality which has many qualities. The conscious jiva falls into bondage and turns towards material due to different other reality. To bring the materialistic aspect back to the conscious form they bring kavailya; the enlightment of unconscious ajiva to conscious jiva.

    @proust @Yugala plz look into this.
  • I have written 3 mains with philosophy optional, for the first two attempts I scored quite ok ok in paper 2 but this tym due to same repetitive nature of questions of caste, women and like in paper 2 I dint even feel like writing those answers, I was out of any new idea or input for which my hands would agree upon to write those answers and end up getting very less marks. Anyone of u felt the same way??

    how can one sustain relativity without accepting Absolute? I don't think Syadvad can can be sustained without absolute.
