Chakravarthi Ram-Prasad on Philosophy of Indian Religions | Closer to Truth

Synopsis

How do philosophical traditions differ across Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism? How do they address big questions in the philosophy of religion?

Chakravarthi Ram-Prasad is Distinguished Professor of Comparative Religion and Philosophy at Lancaster University (UK) and a Fellow of the British Academy. In this interview with host Robert Lawrence Kuhn, he discusses metaphysics, God, and reality from the perspective of Indian religions.

The Global Philosophy of Religion Project aims to make the philosophy of religion a truly global field by promoting the scholarly work of researchers from underrepresented regions and religious traditions. It is led by Professor Yujin Nagasawa and hosted by the University of Birmingham. This interview was conducted by Robert Lawrence Kuhn, host of Closer To Truth.

This project was made possible in part through the support of a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
