    Reconsidering the Private–Public Distinction.Gurpreet Mahajan - 2009 - Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 12 (2):133-143.
    Although most political theorists accept that the meaning of concepts is in part context specific, this dimension tends to be neglected when they deal with concepts that have been part of the collective political imagination for a long period of time. This has been the case with the concepts of public and private. Since the time of Aristotle, public and private have often been represented as two separate and discreet zones of activity, with the private viewed as the domain of (...)

    Decolonizing Sikh Studies.Gurpreet Mahajan - 2021 - Journal of World Philosophies 6 (1):183-185.
    A call for decolonization must begin by acknowledging the context in which Sikh Studies has emerged in the west and the struggle for respect and recognition that marks the life of minorities. As our capacity to pursue an agenda for intra-group equality is constrained by the presence of inter-group inequalities, the two concerns must go together.

    Explanation and Understanding in the Human Sciences.Gurpreet Mahajan - 1997 - Oxford University Press.
    Which form of explanation is adequate for the humans sciences? Mahajan argues that social reality can be perceived in different ways--hermeneutic understanding, narrative, reason action and causal explanation--and each alters our perception of reality. A new chapter on poststructuralist and postmodern theories brings this important book up-to-date with current thinking.
