JONATHAN DICKSTEIN is a graduate student in Religious Studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He primarily studies the Sanskrit language with an emphasis on the philosophical literature of ancient India. His main focus is Sāṃkhya and Yoga traditions and the intersections of the two over time. This requires a careful study of the history of the study of Indian Philosophy from both Indian and Western perspectives. The historical implications of such study also necessitate research into theories of modernism/post-modernism and colonialism/post-colonialism.
