India has the advantage of having valuable insights from traditional wisodm philosophies, whose importance is increasingly recognised in recent years, especially the Vedantic and Buddhist wisdom traditions among other systems such as Samkhya and Nyaya.

Such work will mostly adopt analytical and qualitative methodology, and fundamental research.
