[INDOLOGY] Madhavacharya

In fact, the late Anantalal Thakur demonstrated that the SDS was NOT written by माधवाचार्यः but by his protege, the logician Cannibhaṭṭa.

He provides his evidence, which is entirely convincing, here:
Anantalal Thakur, “Cannibhaṭṭa and the authorship of the Sarvadarśanasaṃgraha,” Bulletin of the Adyar Library 25
(1961): 524–538.

It is odd that few seem to have taken note of Thakur's impressive detective work and that most still attribute the SDS to माधवा.

No, Purnaprajna Darsana is founded by Madhvacarya श्रीमध्वाचार्याः
And the author of Sarvadarsana sangraha is Madhavacharya

As, presently I am deeply involved in preparing an article on BrahmaSutra's interpretations,I do need to clarify one doubt .Are Madhavacharya of "Sarvadarshan Samgraha" and Madhavacharya of "PurnaPragnyaDarshan" fame one and identical?
If , anybody may kindly help me out.
