Group blog on Sanskrit (and) Philosophy

I am firmly convinced that any purpose we might want to achieve within Sanskrit (and) philosophy can only be achieved through a joint effort (alone, we will never be influential enough). Further, working together means more fun:-) This is the foundation of the Coffee Break Project (see here) and I would like it to be the foundation also of a group blog on topics of Sanskrit (and) philosophy. It should work along the lines of other group blogs in the field of (Western) philosophy (see for instance: http://www.newappsblog.com/ or http://blog.practicalethics.ox.ac.uk/) or of Chinese philosophy, see: http://warpweftandway.com/

Interested in the project?  Then, keep on reading.

What would you have to do? You might ask to be part of our group of bloggers and post and/or comment and/or moderate comments and/or look for external contributors and/or advertise the blog…

Why? Because it is fun to interact although we work far apart from each other. And because we might help making Sanskrit (and) philosophy part of the general intellectual landscape by starting interesting discussions about it.

How? You do not need to commit to a certain amount of blog posts per month. However, I expect that you will read the other posts and join the discussion.

Who is already in? Until now: me, Amod Lele, Aleix Ruiz-Falqués, Matthew Dasti, Daniele Cuneo, Andrew Ollett, Agnieszka Rostalska, Jason Birch, Mike Williams (the sequence is random).

For further posts on the idea of a group blog on Indology and/or on Indian philosophy, you can read my previous blog, here and here.
