Thanks for inspiring my further study of Indian Philosophy Mogg, particularly Samkhya, I'd say I was now a 'convert' to another paradigm, within the context of my interpretation of it anyhow. Still studying but have written this online essay

Just completed this essay on secular Indian Philosophy

http://network.kiamagic.com/wiki/index.php?title=Indian_Philosophy_(secular)

Not quite a scholarly paper but the stepping stone to one maybe.
