Sanskrit philosophical tandem?

Dear readers and co-bloggers, a colleague of mine, who is professor of philosophy in the US and works on German and English philosophy, started studying Sanskrit about one year ago. He is now at the point where he would just need to read texts, but there are no Sanskritists in his area. Do you happen to know of someone who could be interested in reading with him some easy śāstra text? In exchange, he could read with her/him German or English philosophical texts. You can also answer me with a private email (my name dot my surname at gmail dot com).

  1. I would like to read Sanskrit texts with him. I do not claim myself to be a scholar in Sanskrit but still have enough exposure to Sanskrit that might suffice the purpose. I am further interested in reading either Heidegger/ Kant/ Wittgenstein (not necessarily in German, English will do) with him. It would be a pleasure to learn from him.

  2. I think I can read Patanjali’s Yogasutra with him to begin with. It is comparatively easy sanskrit in ‘sutra’ form. With him, I would like to read Wittgenstein’s Tractatus in German which is also written in ‘sutra’ fashion.It would be an enriching exchange, I suppose!
