Compare and contrast the philosophical positions of Advaita Vedānta and Patañjali’s Yoga. Focus on one or two areas of philosophy and compare them across Advaita Vedānta and Yoga. For example, consider their theories of causation, self- identity, consciousness and mind, reality of the world, epistemology (such as ignorance, memory, self-knowledge), ethics, etc. Explain the philosophical claims these traditions make in these specific area(s). What are the principle arguments, why are these positions necessary in the broader context of each tradition, how are they connected (if you choose two areas), and how do these two traditions construct and/or defend their relevant conclusions? Explain how Advaita Vedānta and Yoga differ or agree regarding the specific area(s) – what kinds of conflicts or disagreements potentially arise between the Yogin and the Advaitin? Does one tradition hold a stronger position in your specific area(s) of discussion, and why?
