本シンポジウムでは、インドと台湾と日本からゲストを招き、インドを中心に、近現代のアジアにおける宗教性と世俗性のあり方、語られ方について考えます。
「世俗性」や「世俗化」、さらには「宗教」という概念も、西洋近代的な構築物であり、それが非西洋に当てはめられたことでさまざまな齟齬やゆがみが生じてきたという批判がなされてきました。重要な指摘ですが、「西洋近代」の支配力を強調することで、近代世界の構築において非西洋世界が果たした役割が受動的なもの、被害者的なものに矮小化されかねないという矛盾も生じてきました。本シンポジウムでは、実際のところ、インドで、またアジアで、宗教性と世俗性がどのように語られ、立ち現れてきたのかを見直し、そこから、宗教・世俗・近代の三つを見る視点を少しでも多様化したいと考えています。ぜひご参加ください。

In recent decades, the notion of “modernity” and its related concepts have been frequently critiqued as modern Western constructs subsequently imposed on the rest of the world. At the same time, however, we need to note that by criticizing the tyranny of “Western modernity,” we risk neglecting the agency the non-Western world exerted in shaping modernity.
This symposium examines discourses on the “religious” and the “secular” in modern India and Asia, and explores how the non-Western world played a unique role in shaping modernity. We have invited scholars of religion, philosophy, and politics from India, Taiwan and Japan. Please come and join our discussion.

インドの著名な政治哲学者であるA. Raghuramaraju博士をお迎えし、国際セミナーを開催します。イギリス支配の “entry” と “exit” をめぐる暴力性の対称性/非対称性という新たな視点から、ガーンディーの「非暴力」論を見直します。ふるってご参加ください。

本研究会はどなたでもご参加頂くことができますが、万博自然公園口への入園手続きおよび資料準備の都合上、参加を希望される方はMINDAS事務局(mindas@idc.minpaku.ac.jp)まで事前にご連絡いただけますようお願いいたします。

We have invited the well-known philosopher Professor A. Raghuramaraju from India as our guest speaker for our international seminar. His lecture will examine the non-violence espoused by M. K. Gandhi from a new perspective, focusing on the symmetric construction between the “non-violence” he chose to require the “exit” of the British from India and the “no-violence” of the “entry” of British rule into India. We invite you all to come and join our discussion.

Anyone is welcome, but please contact MINDAS  (mindas@idc.minpaku.ac.jp) in advance, so that we can arrange the material and the entry into Expo ’70 Commemorative Park for the participants.

ABSTRAC.T
M. K. Gandhi made the relation between politics and violence contingent. He claimed that the purpose of politics, which is to bring people together, cannot be accomplished by violence but by non-violence. This claim had a few takers. Notwithstanding this, Gandhi sought to use this formula in his project of fighting against the British in the Indian national movement and succeeded. This, however, is contested by some like Judith Brown who seeks to underplay the role of non-violence in bringing out freedom from the British by Indians. I will contest this by introducing a distinction between exiting British and receiving India from them. Conceding the claim of Brown that non-violence played no role in exiting the British, I want to assign the role to it in receiving India from them after they left. Further, Gandhi idea of non-violence is not an abstract value but an appropriate answer to a unique question regarding the entry of British into India. The uniqueness lies in the fact that British did not enter into India using violence so exiting them using violence would not be appropriate and Gandhi found in non-violence an appropriate answer to their entry that was without violence.
