Are there Hindu commentaries on the Laws of Manu, and do they say anything about the "system" in these passages?

And as I had commented on the earlier post, this only suggests that rather than Ayurveda being the definitive taxonomy in the Indian tradition and the equivalent of Aristotle, what we find instead is that there are several taxonomies: one in therapeutics and pharmacy, one in a system of justice, and so on, depending on what the taxonomy is for.


From this blog post
it appears there various 'prescriptions' in Brihadaranyaka Upanishad to beget different types of sons.
