L. McCrea.

For more than 3000 years, India has been home to vast and extremely rich poetic, religious, and philosophical literatures.  One of the most notable features of Indian culture in all these areas is a highly developed tradition of self-analysis.  This course will focus on how literary and religious intellectuals in classical India themselves thought and wrote about the proper way to read and interpret the scriptural, literary, and philosophical works which formed the basis of their own tradition.
