Synopsis: This one-day engagement with Indian philosophical traditions of thinking was aimed at introducing to the participants the idea of rationality and thinking in Indian thought. The sessions consisted of two parts, a basic introduction to Indian philosophical thought through the exploration of some concepts and also the application of these to contemporary issues in philosophy. The second half was to explore a few of the ethical paradigms of Indian philosophy as an introduction to alternate ethics. The tone of the workshop was discursive and critical, and also sensitive to cultural ethos of India.
