The four way logic appears also in:http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html
SN 44.6 PTS: S iv 388 CDB ii 1386
Sariputta-Kotthita Sutta: Sariputta and Kotthita (4)
translated from the Pali by
does the Tathagata exist after death?"
"That, friend, has not been declared by the Blessed One: 'The Tathagata exists after death.'"
"Well then, friend Kotthita, does the Tathagata not exist after death?"
"Friend, that too has not been declared by the Blessed One: 'The Tathagata does not exist after death.'"
"Then does the Tathagata both exist and not exist after death?"
"That has not been declared by the Blessed One: 'The Tathagata both exists and does not exist after death.'"
"Well then, does the Tathagata neither exist nor not exist after death?"
"That too has not been declared by the Blessed One: 'The Tathagata neither exists nor does not exist after death.'"
So I guess this 4 way structure is not specific to the truth or falsity of views but is a more general construction....here doing the same analysis for exist/not exist.....seems to me again that the Buddha is trying to show us the limits of views on existence rather than to encourage us to think that factualness is the important thing about views on existence.....this is similar to my veiw on truthness/falseness of views as discussed before; I think the Buddha is nudging us to see the limitations of truth and to see that whether views are true or not is not the essential feature we need to be concerned with...rather it is the nature of views in general that needs to be understood....in my view....hahahhaha
P.S. Seems like there are alot of places where this 4 way analysis is used....but I can't think of any off hand....can someone provide others?
P.P.S. I hope it is ok to present this new example....perhaps you were wanting to only consider the t/f for views....if so then sorry to have gone off topic.
