22. A perception where we do not have the knowledge of an object characterized by any predicate but an apprehension of some unrelated elements is called as?

  • Option : B
  • Explanation : Advaita of Hindu philosophy identifies two types of Direct Perception: determinate or savikalpaka and indeterminate or nirvikalpaka. Determinate perception is that where the knowledge of an object gained from the statement has determinism associated with it as it is characterized by the predicate or directly relatable in terms of the substantive and its attributes.
    Indeterminate perception is one where the knowledge gained from the statement is not directly relatable to the subject, i.e. the determinism '1 know this' is not discretely present For example: 'This is that Shiva'has two components 'this is Shiva' and 'that was Shiva' where 'this' stands for what is present before us while 'that' refers to the past that has to be recalled from memory.
