Our very own Anand Vaidya has two recent blog posts on the new Blog of the American Philosophical Association. The first post, “The Inclusion Problem in the Philosophy of Mind: The Case of Dualism,” looks at ways to include non-Western philosophy (specifically Dharmakīrti and Ibn Sina) in a philosophy of mind course. The second, “The Inclusion Problem in the Philosophy of Mind: Questions and Response,” addresses a number of typical worries about cross-cultural inclusion in philosophy courses.
Even if you don’t teach philosophy of mind courses, you might find Anand’s posts insightful and worth sharing with colleagues. I also imagine many of us will be glad to see Indian philosophy featured so prominently on the official blog of a major philosophy organization like the APA. Thanks, Anand!
