The 20th century India witnessed quite a strong tendency towards the separation of philosophy from religion, regarding them as two autonomous phenomena. This tendency corresponded with a more general endeavor, namely getting philosophy closer to science. The author focuses especially on new streams, which appeared by the end of the millennium and are still relevant today. These include philosophy of science, feminist philosophy, Gandhian philosophy, postcolonial studies (in terms of their importance for philosophy) as well as still reverberant existentialist and Marxist doctrines.
