was a development of the Nyaya darsana. The works of earlier philosophers like Vacaspati Misra and Udayana have influenced Navya-Nyaya. Till the eighteenth century it remained active. It remained active in India through to the 18th century. Tattvacintamani by Ganesa was a defence of Advaita Vedanta which offered several criticisms of Nyaya theories of thought and language. This book dealt with the important aspects of Indian philosophy which includes logic, set theory and epistemology thereby developing the Nyaya.
