This course examines the intellectual encounter between India and the West from the 1770’s to the present day, a period that coincides with the entry of India into the historical experience of colonialism and modernity. It looks at how the discovery of knowledge about India affected debates in modern European philosophy and conversely examines the reception of European ideas in modern Indian thought. Students will be encouraged to compare some central philosophical ideas from Indian devotional traditions with the ideas of Western philosophers in order to examine the possibility of a convergence between these seemingly different traditions of thought.
