Global Philosophy Research Interest Group Talk (Monima Chadha, Monash)
Friday October 7, 2022, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Global Philosophy Research Interest Group is delighted to welcome as guest speaker Monima Chadha, an associate professor of Philosophy at Monash University. Dr. Chadha’s research focuses on the cross-cultural philosophy of mind, specifically the classical Indian and contemporary Western philosophy of mind, and she is at the forefront of research to integrate insights on mind, consciousness, and the self from across these philosophical traditions and the cognitive neurosciences.
The Global Philosophy Research Interest Group explores the benefits of drawing on diverse traditions of thought in approaching philosophical questions. These include novel insights into familiar problems, new questions and research directions, and fresh methodologies. We work to deprovincialize and decolonize all aspects of philosophy in the academy. The group currently has strengths in Sanskrit philosophy, and Chinese philosophy, Indian philosophy in English, and classical Islamic philosophy.SHARE
