title of a book
a systematic account of epistemology, logic and philosophy of grammar written by Gaṅgeśopādhyāya. It deals almost exclusively with the epistemology of the nyāya system with little attention to metaphysics or ontology. The Tattva-cintāmaṇi laid the foundation of a new system of dialectics in India. His book became so popular that no one thereafter could be considered a scholar of nyāya unless they wrote a commentary on this book. The most famous commentary on Tattva-cintāmaṇi was written by Raghunātha (Kāṇāībhaṭṭa) Śiromaṇi, a contemporary of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu.
