  • Aims and Scope

    Aims and Scope


    The mission of the Journal of Dharma Studies: Philosophy, Theology, Ethics, and Culture is to employ theoretical and empirical methodologies for the intersubjective understanding of, and real-world applications of the conceptual resources, textual sources, and experiential practices—including ritual, social, ethical, liturgical, contemplative, or communitarian—to foster critical-constructive reflections on Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist traditions (what is now referred to as Dharma Studies). The journal seeks to contextualize these traditions in reference to the contemporary global era, with large diasporic populations that affiliate with these religions to be found across the globe. The journal seeks to cultivate scholarship that simultaneously uncovers both the interconnected histories of these traditions and, simultaneously highlight the significant differences and rich diversity of philosophy and practice found within these Dharma Traditions. The scope of the journal lies beyond purely descriptive, journalistic, methodologies and moves towards an expansion of Dharma Studies to intersect with emerging areas and disciplines with the aim of a robust and rigorous interdisciplinary discourse on Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist Philosophy, Theology, Ethics, and Culture in engagement with areas including but not limited to:

    §  Sustainability Studies and Religions

    Ø  Ecological Economics

    Ø  Environmental Ethics

    Ø  Social Equitability 

    Ø  Peace and Conflict Studies

    §  Medicine and Religion

    §  Contemplative Studies
