This book investigates the beginnings, in the 10th century CE, of an autonomous reflection on language in the "non-dualist" trend of Brahmanical exegesis (Advaita-Vedanta), inaugurated in the 8th century by Sa¿kara. Its starting point is the detailed study of the most ancient text of that tradition exclusively devoted to linguistic philosophy: Prakasatman's Inquiry into Verbal Knowledge (Sabdanir¿aya), critically edited and translated here for the first time. The text and its translation are followed by a new edition of its only known Sanskrit commentary by another famous Advaitin, Anandabodha (11th century). A preliminary study, historical as well as philosophical, introduces some key concepts, and situates this seminal work at the crossroads between two lines of history: that of the non-dualist movement after Sa¿kara ("classical" or "late" Advaita) and that of linguistic traditions in medieval India. On this basis, an attempt is made to understand why one of the most illustrious non-dualist thinkers chose to engage in an entirely new reflection on language, virtually unknown to his predecessors, thereby breaking new ground for what would become the typical Vedantic reflexion on meaning and interpretation. This approach, centred on hermeneutics rather than doctrine, allows one to understand how philosophy of language came to occupy a prominent position in later Advaita, as the cornerstone of a "system" where Being, however immediate, presents itself through the medium of Sacred Speech.
