Vaiśeṣika is one of the Hindu schools of philosophy. Historically, it has been closely associated with the Hindu school of logic, Nyaya. Vaiśeṣika espouses a form of atomism and postulates that all objects in the physical universe are reducible to a finite number of atoms. Originally proposed by the sage Kaṇāda (or Kana-bhuk, literally, atom-eater) around the 2nd century BCE.
