Matthew R. Dasti

I am an Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department of Bridgewater State University, specializing in philosophy within classical India. I am also a moderator for the Indian Philosophy Blog and a book review editor for Philosophy East and WestTo date, my main research interest has been directed toward the early phase of the Nyāya ("Logic") school of classical Hindu philosophy. I have been most interested in exploring Nyāya accounts of knowledge sources like perception, inference, and testimony. I received my MA/PhD in philosophy from the University of Texas at Austin (2010) and  my undergraduate degree from Rutgers University (2004), in history and philosophy. I have a long-standing love of Indian thought, and like Schopenhauer, I often find solace in the Upanishads.
