Description - Orientalism and Religion by Dr. Richard King
Offers a discussion of the implications of contemporary post-colonial theory for the study of religion. This text examines the way in which notions such as mysticism, religion, Hinduism and Buddhism are taken for granted. He shows how religion needs to be redescribed along the lines of cultural studies. Drawing on a variety of post-structuralist and post-colonial thinkers, such as Foucault, Gadamer, Said, and Spivak, Richard King provides a series of reflections on the nature of religious studies and Indology.
