This website provides an easy way for faculty to begin diversifying existing syllabi and courses by including materials from outside the Western canon.  It contains entries on a wide variety of readings and topics in global philosophy.  Each entry provides a brief description of its topic, recommends a small number of readings and translations, and suggests possible pairings of texts and topics.

Feel free to browse!  You can search for specific topics by typing a search phrase in the search box,  selecting a category in the drop-down menu, or clicking on a tag.

This page is created by Sonia Sikka, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Ottawa, and Anna Lännström, Professor of Philosophy at Stonehill College. It is managed by assistance from Manvitha Singamsetty, PhD candidate in Philosophy at the University of Ottawa.
