It has been more than a month, but in case you would have missed this fine engagement with B. K. Matilal, please have a look at this wonderful edition of the APA Newsletter: download here. In circa 30 pages, it includes reflections on Matilal’s cross-cultural project of relating Indian and Western philosophy (cultural implications), on the analytical methodology for doing so, on his own philosophical positions (in particular regarding Nyāya), and the actual relevance/critique/further developments of his project and philosophy. An exceptionnal programme!
