Sastravid: A New Paradigm for the Study of Indian Philosophy

Since October 2010 the Department of Philosophy at the University of Durham is hosting a four-year research project on Indian philosophical texts funded by the European Research Council. The aim of this project, led by Dr Jan Westerhoff, is to construct a new electronic framework for the encoding of Indian philosophical texts, together with a newly developed method of displaying and analyzing the texts' contents. Associated with the project are six positions, four postdoctoral researchers and two PhD students; these have joined the project in October 2011.
