He also discusses the hard problem of consciousness which debates over which came first, matter or consciousness. Singhal proposes that looking at the problem from multivalued logic may solve the problem.

How Paradoxes Result from a Bi-valued System of Logic

Vedantic or Trivalued System of Logic

This paper, the second in the series of articles on different systems of logic focuses on the Vedantic tri-valued system of logic and contrasts it to the western logic system. On the contrary eastern thought is embedded in trivalued frame of thought that is True, False and Mithya. The western logic system has binary mode of operation. There is no state in between two extremes.

Two Systems of Logic – Aristotlean vs. Saptabhangi

In this article, Aniruddha Singhal discusses the basis of the foundation of the two logic systems: the Western Logic System and the Eastern Logic System. The Western Logic is based on Aristotle’s bivalued logic, while in the East, the greatest logician, the Great Mahavira gave us the multi-valued system. This paper discusses the foundations of this distinction.
