Sonia Sikka

My research has led me to question the division between religion and philosophy, asking about the criteria used to place various forms of thought, reflection and practice under one of these categories as opposed to the other (e.g. a volume edited with Ashwani Peetush). The question about the faith/reason binary affects my approach to the project of globalizing the philosophy of religion. The Asian traditions, in particular Indian ones, with which I am engaged can be taught as religion, but they are also philosophical, though they have been largely excluded from the Eurocentric canon of most philosophy departments. I aim to connect with other scholars concerned with decolonizing the curriculum of both philosophy of religion and philosophy more generally.
