6. áø ÁÃÒ  The Geneology of (Scientific) Texts


ÁÃÒ¿¢¨Ä ¾¢Ã¢¾ø ¦ºöÔðÌ ­ø¨Ä

marabunilai tirital ceyyudku illai
marabuvazip padda collinaana

For CeyyuL, the metatexts, transgressing what obtains in the world as the genesis of thingsis not allowed for all the words emerge within this geneology


All linguistic phenomena is divided into Vazakku and CeyyuL. The vazakku is the expressions of Language that obtain in the world as part of the living stream of life, the language in USE in various functions and hence as expressions of Speech Acts or kuuRRu. CeyyuL on the other hand are that which are COMPOSED as a result of REFLECTIVE activities. Here by CeyyuL is meant the scientific treatises composed by reflecting on Vazakku. But however even as such,  the CeyyuL CANNOT transgress, in order to be TRUE  what obtains in the world, as part of the genesis of things. All reflections must be as what obtains in the world in order to scientific.


ÁÃÒ¿¢¨Ä ¾¢Ã¢Â¢ý À¢È¢Ð À¢È¢¾¡Ìõ

marabunilai tiriyin piRitu piRitaakum

If the Geneology as such is transgressed, then everything gets
thoroughly disorganised (with nothing to hold them together)


By "Marabunilai " is meant  how the things stand  in world as to  what they are and how they are. The scientific texts are required to understand and articulate only what obtains thus and should NOTarticulate  the imagined or fictitious. If the focus on the ways how  things are in world is forgotten then the texts become idiosyntratic, just simply what the person wants to and wishes to say and hence simply OPINIONS and NOT truths. Each person can say what he wishes and thus contribute towards meaningless divergencies with nothing to hold them together. The articulations become fissiparious with nothing to disagree or agree with.

nikazcci avar kaddu aakalaan

The Practice (in the area of ceyyul or scientific texts) is availabale among the
most excellent individuals for the(normative) events (in this field) are constituted by them


 The 'vazakku' here should not be confused with Vazakku as opposed to CeyyuL. The field of scientific investigation is tradition-bound, there is HISTORICITY in the accumulation of scientific understanding and there are PRACTICES that constitute this tradition. In this the Uyarntoor, the most excellent individuals establish the models and norms and it is they who maintain the tradition of scientific study of things. The tradition of science is eminently HUMAN and hence something that continues to be only if there are  PRACTICES as such and as modelled by the most excellent in such studies.

marabunilai tiriyaa maadsiya vaaki
uraipadu nuultaam iruvakai iyala (var. nilaiya)
mutalum vaziyum ena nutaliya neRiyina

Among the TEXTS that do not deviate from the orientation towards the genesis of things as they obtain in the world,
there are basically TWO types from the point of view of how they  inform viz. Mutal, the Primary and Vazi or  the drivative.


The scientific texts constitute a TRADITION among themselves with one constituting the point of DEPARTURE for another. The Mutal-type is that which serves as the point of departure by its excellence and authoritativeness. The Vazi-type are  derivative texts , texts that PRESUPPOSE the TRUTHS as enunciated by the Mutal Nuul. This distinction is evident  in the manner in which they INFORM the truths-- nutaliya neRi

vinaiyin niingki viLangkiya aRivin
munaivan kaNdatu mutanuul aakum

The Mutal Nuul is that  which composed by a person of absolutely CLEAR UNDERSTANDING, an understanding in which all the PREJUDICES are absolved


Historically the most important sutra in the long History of Dravidian Philosophy. Vinai here is Vilangku, the CHAINS that  RESTRICT the seeing and hence PREJUDICES that stand obstructing the UNDERSATNDING of things as they are in themselves. The Vinai within the person introduce a distortion thereby making it IMPOSSIBLE to SEE things as they are in themselves.  However when a person manages to rise above all these vision-obtructing or distorting prejudices, he becomes a MUNAIVAN, a radiant individual, an individual whose understanding shines with CLARITY, a clarity that comes with undubitablity and apodictic certainty. It is this quality of the text that makes it AUTHORITATIVE and hence something that can be  PRESUPPOSED as TRUE and hence in terms of which other investigations by way by pursuing such a study further  can be pursued.


ÅÆ¢¦ÂÉô ÀÎÅÐ «¾ý ÅÆ¢ò¾¡Ìõ

vaziyenap paduvatu atan vazittaakum

What are called Derivative Texts are those composed by way of
following the (lines of investigations as enunciated by ) Authoritative Texts as above.

Now there are FOUR different ways in which the Derivative Texts ar generated.

They are: summarising the essentials of the Primary Text , elaborating further some points there, or doing both and finally translating it into other languages and making them available in their  traditions.


The Authoritative Texts gets adumbarated in FOUR differet ways. The Tokutal is simply assembling together and perhaps in a summary fashion the essential TRUTHS announced in the text. The Virittal is elaborating further and  may be with related corrobarative studies,  exegetical elucidations and so forth. There may be also texts that combine both. Over and above these productions of new but derivative texts we have also TRANSLATIONS into other languages and the transmission of the TRUTHS of the primary texts into the cultural tradition of another linguistic group.

A scientific TEXT has the following structural elements in it: a collection of related sutras, a commentary in the form logical demonstration that serves to establish the truths  and as a whole composed with the  32 utties  and without the ten types  of defects.

Notes: All these structural elements that go to make up a scientific TEXT are enunciated in greater detail in the sutras below one by one.

The sutra is  a statement that occurs in the above types of scientific texts with the following qualities: It is a composition with  the minimal numbers of words; would require a commentary for explicating its meaning; it embodies a deep ILLUMINATION of immense depths;  the insight it embodies is so penetrating that it is not that easy to expound it;  because of the brilliance of insights it is  of immeasurable value. And in addition to these, it also holds within itself  many other implications and nuances  of immense value


The sutra in Hermeneutic Scientific texts that is being explained here holds a position similar to AXIOMS in mathematical treatises, logically the most rigourous. The word is derived from SumeroTamil su/zu meaning an illumination, a light (Ta. cuur, cudar etc) and derivatively a deep understanding.  It is only because it embodies an uncommon and deep understanding perhaps attained for the first time that it requires an explication with appropriate reasons and illustrations

¸ÃôÀ¢ýÈ¢ ÓÊÅÐ ¸¡ñʨ¸ ¡Ìõ

pazippil cuuttiram padda paNbin
karapinRi mudivatu kaaNdikai yaakum

The KaaNdikai type of Logical Demonstration applies to faultless sutras and serves to estabish what is stated beyond doubts and uncertainties.


karappu: confusion , doubts, uncertainties all because of concealment of meaning. The KandiKai must elucidate in such a way that there is no more this concealment or hiddeness and hence it serves to UNCONCEAL or bring to light  the meaning of the sutras.

For this purpose the Kandikai type of logical demonstration stays strictly with the intend of the sutra but at the same expounding the TRUTH of the sutra and for which purpose  it brings the Etu(Reasons)  and Eduttukkaaddu (demonstrations)


These technical terms in Indian Logic occur for the first time here in this sutra. The word Etu is used very widely in all Indian treatises on Logic and is possibly derived from  Ta. etu:  meaning Which? or What? . Since it is  questions of this sort that leads to  seeking of REASONS, probabaly  the Tamil   interrogative was modified to describe the reason itself.

The term " mey neRittu" is also very important. It shows that the CONCERN of Sutras and demonstrations is TRUTH and not something else.

Now over and above the strictly logical Kandikai, there are commentaries that expound the meaning of the sutras bringing together all the necessary information for this purpose.

Such commentaries also must NOT be something that can be refuted and   must clarify  the issues beyond doubts and uncertainties citing one's own texts or others that are well established for this purpose. If there are multiple meanings  then it must be disambiguated so that the single and the most definite meaning stands out  with the  modality of  certainty prevailing throughout.


maRutalai kadAa: that which does not necessitate contary or opposing views.

Now if there is a text without the structural elements above and hence NOT conforming  to those characteristics,  then that text can be considered DEFECTIVE

Among the DEFECTS if the Logical Defects are isolated without any complaints i.e as the generally agreed upon they are the following: redundancies, self-contradictions,  incomplete articulations, excessive and imprecise statements, saying what are meaningless, stating in such a way that it is immensely confusing; couching in a diction very unpleasant to hear; insulting the opponents with abusive language; twisting the facts to establish one's own prejudiced view;  couching in a language with deliberate intend to obfuscate the issue so that no matter how hard one tries there is NO comprehension of what is intended and all such mental strategies and their elaborations.


Here we have the listing  of Logical Fallacies for the first time in Indian history. The first two are stricly logical, the next four pertain to  the Language used and hence semantical.  The "inna yaapu" pertains to prosody and hence poetical. The "pazitta mozi" is Ad Hominem type of fallacies. "Tannan oruporuL karuti kuuRal" pertains to prejudice and hence lack of OBJECTIVITY.  The "Manang KooL inmai" is the deliberate artefact whereby something definite and clear is made impossible from the study of the statement.
