    The Role of Philosophy in the Academic Study of Religion in Indian.Sonia Sikka - 2016 - Argument: Biannual Philosophical Journal 6 (1):55-80.
    Joseph T. O’Connell drew attention to the relative scarcity of academic work on religion in South Asia, and o ered as a plausible explanation for this state of a airs the tension between secular and religio‐political communal interests. This paper explores the potential role of phi‐ losophy as an established academic discipline within this situation, in the context of India. It argues that objective study, including evaluation, of the truth claims of various religious traditions is an important aspect of academic (...)

    Enlightened Relativism: The Case of Herder.Sonia Sikka - 2005 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 31 (3):309-341.
    Johann Gottfried Herder has been described as the founder of cultural relativism within the German philosophical tradition, which would make him the starting-point for one thread in the pattern of ideas leading to the Nazi disaster. More recently, some scholars have rejected this interpretation, arguing that Herder actually supported the universalist values of the Enlightenment. I argue that Herder’s position is actually a complex, and laudable, blend of universalism and relativism. It includes: (1) the presumption of a set of basic (...)

    On the Truth of Beauty: Nietzsche, Heidegger, Keats.Sonia Sikka - 1998 - Heythrop Journal 39 (3):243–263.
    This article is concerned with the validity of what I term the “metaphysico‐religious” interpretation of beauty. This term is intended to cover descriptions and interpretations of beauty which suggest that it indicates: 1) a connectedness of man with nature, of natural things with one another, and/or of man with man in and through some encompassing ground or unity; and, 2) the existence of another and better world, a transcendent reality in which the negative elements of factual existence are somehow cancelled (...)

    Kantian Ethics in Being and Time.Sonia Sikka - 2006 - Journal of Philosophical Research 31:309-334.
    Heidegger’s Being and Time has been accused of espousing empty decisionism and relativism. I argue, first, that in fact Being and Time’s stress on the situated character of human judgment is supplemented by a very Kantian account of being human that defi nes appropriate behavior towards all entities possessing a certain character. Its analysis of conscience and guilt attempts to uncover the existential basis for the distinction Kant draws between the phenomenal and the noumenal aspects of the self. Building on (...)

    Learning to Be Indian.Sonia Sikka - 2004 - Dialogue: Canadian Philosophical Review / Revue canadienne de philosophie 43 (2):339-354.
    RÉSUMÉ: Cet article analyse le besoin qu’éprouvent certaines personnes de se «reconnecter», ou renforcer leurs liens, à une culture dans laquelle elles n’ont jamais été enchâssées, eu égard aux critères auxquels se mesure généralement un tel enchâssement. Situant les résultats de son analyse par rapport à la pensée de Kymlicka et autres, il fait valoir que des facteurs tels que les liens de parenté, l’identification à autrui et l’expérience du racisme déterminent largement quel est le groupe culturel que les individus (...)

    Nietzsche's Contribution to a Phenomenology of Intoxication.Sonia Sikka - 2000 - Journal of Phenomenological Psychology 31 (1):19-43.
    Through a reading of Nietzsche's texts, primarily of Thus Spoke Zarathustra, this article develops a phenomenological description of the variety of intoxication exemplified in conditions of drunkenness, or in states of emotional excess. It treats Thus Spoke Zarathustra as a literary expression of such intoxication, arguing against attempts to find a coherent narrative structure and clear authorial voice behind this text's apparent disorder. Having isolated the intoxicated characteristics of Thus Spoke Zarathustra - its hyperbolic rhetoric and emotions, its lack of (...)

  26. Heidegger, Morality and Politics: Questioning the Shepherd of Being.Sonia Sikka - 2017 - Cambridge University Press.
    Heidegger has often been seen as having no moral philosophy and a political philosophy that can only support fascism. Sonia Sikka's book challenges this view, arguing instead that he should be considered a qualified moral realist, and that his insights on cultural identity and cross-cultural interaction are not invalidated by his support for Nazism. Sikka explores the ramifications of Heidegger's moral and political thought for topics including free will and responsibility, the status of humanity within the design of nature, the (...)

    Herder on Humanity and Cultural Difference: Enlightened Relativism.Sonia Sikka - 2013 - Cambridge University Press.
    Herder is often criticized for having embraced cultural relativism, but there has been little philosophical discussion of what he actually wrote about the nature of the human species and its differentiation through culture. This book focuses on Herder's idea of culture, seeking to situate his social and political theses within the context of his anthropology, metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, theory of language and philosophy of history. It argues for a view of Herder as a qualified relativist, who combined the conception of (...)
