In the last few months I wrote mainly about comparative philosophy, arthāpatti, deontic logic and methodology…

Comparative and Western Philosophy
Why should one engage in non-Western philosophical ideas? The topic is discussed at my new blog, here. On a related line, this post discusses "common sense" and asks whether it is not just "English common sense", this one discusses common prejudices about Indian philosophy, and this post discusses Ankur Barua's discussion on whether there is Philosophy in India. The 172nd Philosophers' Carnival has been, by the way, also hosted on my new blog, here.
This post discusses the McGurk philosophy as an evidence of savikalpa pratyakṣa.

As for methodology, this post discusses edited books, for both editors and contributors and this one discusses the methodology of group translations. By the way, in case you are looking for an Indological job, don't miss this post.

I recently started a new project on an instrument of knowledge called by Mīmāṃsā authors arthāpatti 'cogent evidence'. You can read about it here, here and here (discussing Kumārila's point of view)

Deontic Logic
As for the deontic logic project, you can read about it here, here (on necessity in Mīmāṃsā) and here (on dyadic conditions).

Great authors
This semester, I am teaching Kumārila's Ślokavārttika. Thus, I get inspired to write this post.
This post discusses a line by Veṅkaṭanātha.
This one discusses Daya Krishna's view of the Nyāyasūtra.

You can find further shorter posts, book announcements, CfP and the like at my new blog.
