"The challenge of postcolonial philosophy in India: Too alien for contemporary philosophers, too modern for Sanskritists?"

The main goal of the conference consists in questioning the difficult reception of Indian post-independence philosophy inside and outside India, in particular related to the difficulties of the plurality of languages involved, and of its intermediate status.

9:00–17:00 Uhr
Institut für Philosophie

Participants are invited to reflect on the status and problems of contemporary Indian philosophy (post-independence), on its recognition as philosophy and its specificities, due to its particular colonial history and internal diversity. The organizers in particular want to highlight the transition from the colonial external influences to the postcolonial internal developments that contribute to characterize the cultural and linguistic plurality of Indian philosophical traditions.
