We investigate the status within Unary Pure Inductive Logic of a family
of analogy principles suggested by the so called Indian Schema from Gotama’s
Ny¯ayas¯utra showing that they all follow from the symmetry principle of Atom
Exchangeability. Their status under the weaker assumptions of Constant and
Predicate Exchangeability and Strong Negation are also investigated.
