The Dynamics of Morals

 
G.R. Madan (Editor) V.P. Gupta (Editor)
Synopsis Dr. Radhakamal Mukerjee, a vetern sociologist and economist, in the present volume, outlines a blueprint for a rational ethical theory based on the biology of human nature and on the cohesive forces of human culture. Dr. Mukerjee does not believe in the antithesis between the biological and the cultural sciences and strives to create a new nature of man’s needs is fully realized and equal attention is paid to special individual choice. The ideal has not been achieved. It will take decades for fruition. But, the time has come when thoughtful men and women across the world should fully awake to the challenge and with right earnest start on the pilgrimage to reach the destination Gardner Murphy assures us that Radhakamal Kukerjee "is exceptionally qualified to guide us in this endevour". The division between "normal man and immoral society" denotes a crisis in modern civilization which can be resolved by focusing on the development of an integral view of man and his milieu. Dr. Mukerjee holds tha psychology and sociology vitally concerned with the present chaos in values, morals and culture, are best fitted to take the first steps towards bringing about a reunion between individual and social ethics.
