Is there a Systematic Sikh Ethics?
In recent years, moral philosophers in the West have begun to engage more with the ethical thought of various non-Western traditions, such as Hinduism, Jainism, Confucianism, and Daoism. The goal of such work is often to determine whether the tools of analytic philosophy can be used to draw out systematic ethical theories from these traditions. Singh’s goal in this talk is to do the same for Sikhism. He will argue that a systematic Sikh ethics can indeed be drawn out of Sikh scripture.
Keshav Singh is an assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. His primary areas of study are ethics and epistemology, where his research focuses on finding unified answers to foundational questions about how to live our lives. He has recently begun applying analytic philosophy to draw out a systematic understanding of the Sikh philosophical tradition.
