The Current Situation

As of right now, this is the state of my research. I spent this semester laying the foundation of the analysis. This included the first chapter which gave a short overview of the entire tradition of the Greek’s portrayal of the Indian wise man. As well, the second chapter summarized the Philostratus’ ‘Apollonius of Tyana,’ which I will spend the remainder of the research analyzing, and summarized some of the serious scholarly debates concerning this work and their role in my study.
