Vyaktiviveka, a treatise on Sahityashastra, written by Rajanaka Mahima Bhatta. This landmark work establishes the Anumana theory of explaining suggestion. This work is not so popular among Sahitya enthusiasts due to the extensive use of Nyaya and it’s refutation of the most popular Dhvani theory propounded by Anandavardhana/Dhvanikara. Yet, every scholar studies this text to understand the failure of Anumana theory in Sahitya. Vyaktiviveka represent one of the great reactions among the works criticizing the doctrine of Dhvani theory propounded by the Dhvanyaloka. Mahima Bhatta wrote this Vyaktiviveka most probably two centuries later of Anandavardhana’s Dhvanyaloka, when Anandavardhana’s philosophy of poetics has been widely accepted in Sanskrit Poetics.In this course, Smt. Visalakshi Sankaran provides a detailed explanation in Tamil.
