Subject: [SydPhil] Indian Religions and the Concept of God: An Online Workshop, 
13-14 Feb 2023, 9am CET (13 Feb only) and 3pm CET


An Online Workshop

Feb 13, 9:00-10:30am CET and 3:00-4:30pm CET.

Feb 14, 3:00-4:30pm CET


The purpose of the online workshop INDIAN RELIGIONS AND THE CONCEPT OF GOD is 
to explore Indian concepts of God from a global philosophical perspective. 
Accepting that there are different conceptions of divinity among the Indian 
religious and philosophical traditions, we might pose the following questions: 
How can these concepts of God be philosophically characterized?  Are the Indian 
traditions’ concepts of God really monotheistic in the Western sense of the 
term? Or are they closer to panentheism, henotheism or polytheism? What divine 
properties do the traditions ascribe to their respective divinity? What is 
their relationship with Western philosophical accounts of God? Each speaker in 
the workshop will explore a concept of God in one of the main Indian traditions 
or texts.

The workshop will be held on Zoom. There will be no fee for participation. 
Registration however will be required (via 

The workshop is part of “A Philosophical Approach to the Vaiṣṇava Concept of 
God,” a project funded by the John Templeton Foundation through the Global 
Philosophy of Religion Project, hosted by the University of Birmingham
