Orthodoxy, Heterodoxy, and Dissent in Indian Traditions

School of Consciousness and Transformation PARA 7275 3.00

This course examines the tension between orthodoxy and heterodoxy in Indian spiritual movements in India beginning from about 1500 BCE until the 20th century. Dissent and challenge to orthodoxy are central dynamics in the development of Indian society over the ages, but these are often ignored or glossed over in favor of superficial understandings of Indian social and historical dynamics.
