The Sāṅkhya philosophy, which critically inherited ancient Indian philosophy, was heavily influenced not only by the orthodox Brahmana tradition of India, but also by unorthodox Śramaṇa traditions, including Buddhism and Jainism. This coloquium explores the concept of sensory organs and the development of their operating principles in the process of forming the classical Sāṅkhya philosophy. It also examines the relationship of mutual influence with Buddhism in this process. In this coloquium, we would like to provide not only an opportunity to explore the ideological transformation of Sāṅkhya and Buddhism but also clues to consider the sensory concepts of ancient Indians from an anthropological perspective.

Lecturer Dr. Kang Hyung-chul earned his doctorate degree from the Graduate School of Indian Philosophy at Dongguk University, his doctoral dissertation is 'A Study on the Dispute Surrounding Momentariness between Sāṃkhya and Buddhism'(2013). He has mainly studied the Sāṃkhya school and yoga philosophy among India's six orthodox schools, and recently, has expanded his research area to include Buddhist Yogācāra philosophy and ancient cultural exchanges between Korea and India. The recent studies are as follows. ‘Reinterpreting the Viṃśikāvṛtti 2-4’(2021); ‘Accepting and Modifying an Indian Narrative in the Gaya Kingdom: the Buddha Shadow on Mt. Maneo’(2022); ‘Transformation of Turtle Species in the Process of Dissemination of Indian Culture’(2022). He served as a HK research professor at Geumgang Center for Buddhist Studies, Geumgang University and is currently a research professor at the Institute of Electronic Buddhist Texts and Culture Contents, Dongguk University.
