Refutation of the Tetralemma and Buddhist Logic

Authors: Colin James III

The Buddhist tetralemma as a rendition of the Greek square of opposition produces four axioms for true, false, true and false (contradiction), and neither true nor false (contradiction). There is no designated proof value in Buddhist logic. Because Greek logic of about -350 was transmitted along with mathematical astronomy to India beginning in -100, Greek logic predates Buddhist logic by more than 200 years. Hence Buddhist logic is a trivial subset and mis-application of the Greek logic.
