Conversations with Isaiah Berlin by Isaiah Berlin( Book )
32 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A celebrated master of the spoken as well as the written word, Isaiah Berlin here gives us a rare memoir in the form of a dialogue. Isaiah Berlin is renowned the world over for his analysis of the ideas that have influenced or transformed societies. He has a deep commitment to liberty and pluralism, and has devoted the half century and more of his professional life as a teacher and lecturer to exploring the conditions that allow these ideals to flourish, and those that threaten them. Berlin here intersperses insights into the development of his ideas and political philosophy with rich personal reminiscences. He discusses Machiavelli, Marx, Vico, Herder, and Herzen, among others, and their influence over him. As he leads us from Petrograd to Oxford, Washington, Moscow, London, and Jerusalem, he speaks of his friends and contemporaries: W.H. Auden, Stephen Spender, Igor Stravinsky, A.J. Ayer, Bertrand Russell, and many others. He tells of his moving encounters with Anna Akhmatova, Boris Pasternak, and Chaim Weizmann, and of his passion for music and literature. Frank and engaging, Conversations with Isaiah Berlin is a remarkable record of one of the great intellectual odysseys of our time
The Gandhian moment by Ramin Jahanbegloo( )
12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Overview: Gandhi is revered as a historic leader, the father of Indian independence, and the inspiration for nonviolent protest around the world. But the importance of these practical achievements has obscured Gandhi's stature as an extraordinarily innovative political thinker. Ramin Jahanbegloo presents Gandhi the political theorist-the intellectual founder of a system predicated on the power of nonviolence to challenge state sovereignty and domination. A philosopher and an activist in his own right, Jahanbegloo guides us through Gandhi's core ideas, shows how they shaped political protest from 1960s America to the fall of the Berlin Wall and beyond, and calls for their use today by Muslims demanding change. Gandhi challenged mainstream political ideas most forcefully on sovereignty. He argued that state power is not legitimate simply when it commands general support or because it protects us from anarchy. Instead, legitimacy depends on the consent of dutiful citizens willing to challenge the state nonviolently when it acts immorally. The culmination of the inner struggle to recognize one's duty to act, Jahanbegloo says, is the ultimate "Gandhian moment." Gandhi's ideas have motivated such famous figures as Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, and the Dalai Lama. As Jahanbegloo demonstrates, they also inspired the unheralded Muslim activists Abul Kalam Azad and Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, whose work for Indian independence answers those today who doubt the viability of nonviolent Islamic protest. The book is a powerful reminder of Gandhi's enduring political relevance and a pioneering account of his extraordinary intellectual achievements

"Multifaceted thinker and prolific author, Ashis Nandy is considered to be one of India's leading intellectuals. For someone trained as a clinical psychologist and later as a sociologist, he continues to capture the imagination of the reading public and those interested in ideas, for his fertile mind, myriad and unpredictable ways of thinking and the essential humanism which all his writings signify. This book is a series of comprehensive interviews conducted by Ramin Jahanbegloo at Teheran and organized over six sessions. The interviewer questions Nandy within the context of his own 'Indian-ness' as also his affinity (and criticisms) for things Indian: whether it be thought, religion or pluralistic tendencies. The essence of Ashis Nandy and his perspectives on a wide range of things include political philosophy, democracy, India and Pakistan, globalization, Indian culture and tradition, and Gandhi, are all revealed. Throughout the interview, Nandy brings to bear his formidable intellect on these questions, which is always challenging and engaging." -- Book jacket

India analysed by Sudhir Kakar( Book )
6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Prominent psychoanalyst and eminent author, Sudhir Kakar is considered one of India's leading intellectuals. A mechanical engineer, Kakar did his doctorate in economics before beginning his training in psychoanalysis at the Sigmund-Freud Institute in Frankfurt, Germany in 1971. For someone trained as an engineer and later as an economist, he continues to cross disciplinary boundaries and capture the imagination of readers and everyone interested in the world of ideas. Based on interviews of Sudhir Kakar by Iranian philosopher Ramin Jahanbegloo, India Analysed is a journey into Kakar's mind - his fertile and unpredictable ways of thinking, and the essential humanism which all his writings signify - recounting the life and ideas of Kakar in his own words. In the process, the book affords readers rare insights into the psychological make-up of the modern Indian. Flowing effortlessly from Kakar's descriptions of his early life in undivided India to discussions on the Indian psyche and sexuality, the book also dwells on his views on secularism and modern Indian leaders like Gandhi and Nehru. Kakar brings to bear his intellect on a wide range of issues like philosophy, democracy, Indian culture and tradition, and the Partition, and the conversational style of the interviews helps demystify many of his complex ideas. The third in the series of Ramin Jahanbegloo's interviews of prominent intellectuals who have influenced modern Indian thought, this challenging and engaging volume will interest both a scholarly and an informed lay audience who want to understand India as seen through the eyes of one of the country's leading contemporary thinkers."--Jacket
