Dear Colleagues,

Jonardon Ganeri has asked me to publicize an upcoming conference this
summer dedicated to the memory of Bimal Krishna Matilal. It will be held in
Wolfson College, Oxford. Many leading scholars will be giving talks that
touch on Prof. Matilal’s legacy in the study of Indian philosophy.

A complete schedule of events:

And a downloadable PDF of the conference poster:

*Bimal Matilal conference on Indian philosophy *
*in Wolfson College, Oxford, June 26-7, 2015*

Explaining Indian Philosophy to Westerners was the life work of Prof. Bimal
Matilal of All Souls and that tradition has been continued in writings by
the speakers in this conference organised by Richard Sorabji and Jonardon

Please book with Dr Annie Hewitt, saying whether you wish to come to the
whole conference or to what part, ashewitt at gmail.com
