James Kimball

James Kimball received his PhD in the Study of Religions in spring 2012 from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.

His areas of specialization are Hinduism, classical Indian philosophy, and Sanskrit language and literature. His thesis, “The Soteriological Role of the ṛṣi Kapila in the Yuktidīpikā: the Production and Transmission of Liberating Knowledge in Classical Sāṃkhya,” focuses on the role of doctrinal authority in the Sāṃkhya school of philosophy. His recent article in the Journal of Indian Philosophy is available here.

Dr. Kimball is currently teaching Intro to Religion and will also be teaching Mysticism in Spring 2015.
