Abstract:

"The Philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi offers a fresh perspective on one of the most admired - yet also controversial - figures of the twentieth century. Douglas Allen and a leading group of Gandhi scholars present numerous ways in which Gandhi's thought and action-oriented approach are urgently needed for addressing major problems as we move into the twenty-first century. In turn, the contributors discuss how Gandhi's philosophy can shed light on issues of violence and nonviolence, war and peace, religion and religious conflict and dialogue, terrorism, ethics, civil disobedience, injustice, modernism and postmodernism, forms of oppression and exploitation, and environmental destruction. The Philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi will appeal to all levels of students and scholars."--Jacket.
