The Philosopher of Language and Religion: Remembering Margaret Chatterjee

Journal of World Philosophies 4 (2):173-177 (2019)

This article sketches some of the main ideas that informed the work of the post-colonial Indian philosopher Margaret Chatterjee. A philosopher of language and religion, her work straddles the “frozen” traditions of the east and the west, and astutely philosophizes about Gandhian thought in the realm of religious alterity and coevality.
