All works of Balagangadhara make use of use-mention distinction. Please get familiarized with this distinction.
In logic the words ‘use’ and ‘mention’ [both the nouns and the verbs] are sometimes used in a technical sense to mark an important distinction, which is explaind by example:
- ‘London’ is a word six letters long.
- London is a city.
In 1 the word ‘London’ is said to be mentioned; in 2 the word ‘London’ is said to be used (and not mentioned).
- ‘Hinduism’ and hipkapi: an Imaginary entity –S.N. Balagangadhara
- Cognitive Superiority
