Regular blog readers may remember my earlier posts that I was co-editing, along with Prasanta Bandyopadhyay, the Fall 2017 edition of the APA Newsletter on Asian and Asian-American Philosophers and Philosophies. The theme of the issue is “B. K. Matilal: The Past and Future of the Study of Indian Philosophy.” I am happy to announce that the issue is now available!
The issue contains the following articles.
- “An Exemplary Indian Intellectual: Bimal Krishna Matilal,” Jonardon Ganeri
- “Philosophy, Indian and Western: Some Thoughts from Bimal Matilal,” Chakravarthi Ram-Prasad
- “Bimal Krishna Matilal’s Style of Doing Philosophy,” Richard Hayes
- “Three Dogmas of Matilal: Direct Realism, Lingophilia, and Dharma Ethics,” Purushottama Bilimoria
- “A Cautionary Note on Matilal’s Way of Doing Indian Philosophy,” Nirmalya Narayan Chakraborty
- “Whither the Matilal Strategy?,” Ethan Mills
- “Nyāya Ethical Theory,” Kisor K. Chakrabarti
- “Bimal Krishna Matilal and the Enduring Significance of the Constructive Engagement Between Contemporary Analytic and Classical Indian Philosophy,” Anand Jayprakash Vaidya
- “Expanding Matilal’s Project through First-Person Research,” Neil Sims
I am extremely thankful to my co-editor and the contributors. I think it turned out really well (although I may be biased, of course).
