Is Yajnavalkya a mathematician ?[edit]

Is Yajnavalkya a mathematician ? Alren 17:27, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Hmm... all astronomers do a bit of maths, but that doesn't seem reason enough to keep him listed as such, unless somebody provides more information on his mathematical exploits? VivaEmilyDavies 22:45, 9 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I think it will be fine if he is taken out of the list of mathematicians. Other opinions? Oleg Alexandrov 22:51, 9 Apr 2005 (UTC)

600 B.C.[edit]

My source work on philosophy gives the date of Yajnavalkya as "About 600 B.C.", that is quite a difference from what it stands as currently. I know Indian philosophical movements tend to push the dates of their founders back quite a bit unnecessarily. Nagelfar 10:07, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

The 1800 BC estimate is based on the internal date of the Shatapatha Brahmana. The more conservative date is based on linguistic theory. 68.159.24.250 03:57, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
