TAT7201 – This course is the first of a 6-part Course Sequence that explores the great epic of India, The Mahābhārata
Aimed at intermediate and advanced students, this course will prepare them to read the Mahābhārata thoughtfully, using the tools of philosophy, logical inquiry, hermeneutics, and poetic theory. Students will learn to locate the Mahābhārata within a textual tradition extending backward into the Vedic Saṃhitās and forward into the Purāṇas and Āgamas. They will also develop an appreciation for why, even today, this text continues to be foundational for the living tradition of Hinduism. Thereafter, we shall explore the history/myth distinction for the Mahābhārata which will allow us to appreciate the text as a dharmaśāstra and a mokṣaśāstra and as a work of epic poetry i.e, a mahākāvya.
This course will also provide a comprehensive overview of the extent and divisions of the Mahābhārata and its different editions. Students will learn to read and work with the critical edition, about textual and historical issues, and Mahābhārata Scholarship.
