Ahimsa, Anekanta and Jainism

 
Tara Sethia (Editor)
Synopsis

Essays in this volume offer fresh insights into Jain principles of Ahimsa and Anekanta by examining their meaning and historical significance, and demonstrate their relevance and role in addressing contemporary issues of intolerance, conflict, violence and war. Contributors to this book bring perspectives from the disciplines of philosophy, religious studies, history and art history.

"These essays contain piercing and prescriptive approaches to grappling, according to Jain tradition, with current geopolitics, particularly in the wake of terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001…In addressing a host of tantalizing Jain clues to human salvation and the global amelioration of suffering, the contributors to his impressive volume have unearthed a continual appeal that has worked for the Jains for millennia and could work for others."
