9780415202572: Orientalism and Religion: Post-Colonial Theory, India and

Orientalism and Religion offers us a timely discussion of the implications of contemporary post-colonial theory for the study of religion. Richard King examines the way in which notions such as mysticism, religion, Hinduism and Buddhism are taken for granted. He shows us how religion needs to be reinterpreted along the lines of cultural studies. Drawing on a variety of post-structuralist and post-colonial thinkers, such as Foucault, Gadamer, Said, and Spivak, King provides us with a challenging series of reflections on the nature of Religious Studies and Indology.

About the Author:

Richard King teaches Religious Studies at the University of Stirling. He is the author of Early Advaita Vedanta and Buddhism.

Review:

"Richard King's Orentalism and Religion" is an impressive and truly cross-disciplinary study that tackles head on some of the field's most deeply ingrained yet troublesome presumptions. This book promises to set the terms for future debates on the status, methods and "theories of religion."
-Russell McCutcheon, Southwest Missouri State University
"An insightful and provocative contribution to recent series of studies that can be best characterized as 'colonial discourse analysis'."
-Gerald Larson, Indiana University
"This is an important book. The main theme, the 'othering' of the East, is highly significant and original, painstakingly documented, and with major implications for western scholarship."
-Grace Jantzen, University of Manchester
