Inclusion on the APA Blog

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!

  1. thank you for taking care of it, Ethan. I also find Anand’s arguments insightful and interesting and will certainly think of them when I am next asked about my syllabus! And I agree about the fact that it is nice that the problem of inclusion is dealt with from the point of view of Indian philosophy.
