(c. 200 B.C.E.)
   Indian philosopher
   Jaimini is one of the great philosophers of the MIMAMSA tradition. His Mimamsa Sutras was a complete exposition of the views of one school of Mimamsa; he argued against other schools, which are no longer extant. Mimamsa is a basis for the Vedic ritualistic worldview (see VEDA), and the for-mation of the Hindu tradition in general. No bio-graphical information about Jaimini has survived.
