Friends, Anand Vaidya asked me for feedback on a book proposal for readings in Indian philosophy. I told him that perhaps the blog members could give their two cents and he said that would be a good idea. So, what do you think about a proposal like the following (everything is provisional, of course)?
Title: Arguments from classical Indian Philosophy
Anand notes that “this would require good excerpts from the various schools organized in a very tight manner. But still something really basic where we have short selections and exchanges that students can read. And something non-comprehensive. I don’t think they want a massive reader.”
So, what he wants to know is (i) is there a need for such a volume, targeting an undergraduate-level readership? (ii), any big-picture suggestions for this sort of project? (iii) who may be inspired to work with him on it?
Please post reflections on (i) and (ii) below. For (iii), you can write him directly at email@example.com
