It will be the first of its kind in Sweden. It focuses on the Buddhist, Hindu, Materialist, and Sceptical traditions that have existed in India for a long time, starting with Vedic metaphysical speculations 3,500 years ago, and ends up with today’s postcolonial theories. The course is aimed at students within the humanities, mainly Philosophy, Science of Religion, and from History of Ideas. A new course runs during the Fall semester 2010. More information. new
