The earliest writers on this subject were Kunda Kunda charya and Umaswami, The title of the work Pariksamukham is derived according tot he author is Nyayamanidipika: pariksa and Tarka is discussion used in finding out the strengtjh or weakness of various arguments which are opposed to one another. Pari Means full and Iksanam means dincussion. Amukha means the entrance to those who want to understand this subject. This work is like such a door. Another derivation is also suggested by the same writer as followers: As examination of all objects is made by Pramana so Pramana is the first thing in parikas, Here the work itself describing Pramana is also titles in the same name.
