This year the Columbia Society for Comparative Philosophy is honored to have Jonathan Gold as the new chair. Professor Gold currently teaches at Princeton. His research focuses on Indian and Tibetan Buddhist intellectual traditions, especially theories of language, translation and learning. He is the author of The Dharma's Gatekeepers: Sakya Pandita on Buddhist Scholarship in Tibet (2007), which explains the nature of language and the role of the scholar from the unique perspective of a great thirteenth-century Tibetan philosopher. His current research interests include a study of early Yogacara Buddhist philosophy in India and a history of the doctrine of nonviolence.
