Mahatma Gandhi and His Contemporaries

Bindu Puri (Editor)
Synopsis At the turn of the century Gandhi stands as a beacon light from the past, not because he was a Mahatma but as a man who lived an authentic and effective moral life. This is precisely what makes him such an important figure for moderns to understand. The question is how the Gandhian legacy can be authentically articulated and recovered. In a crucial sense it seems clear that the moral vision at the heart of Gandhi’s thought can be recovered only through his active life in the arena of politics and religion. It is in Gandhi’s relationships, in this domain, with the figures of his time that one can locate the meaning of his vision. In this volume an attempt has been made to focus on the importance of contextuality in making moral judgements and decisions through an examination of inter-personal relationships which are the real home of moral practice. Mahatma Gandhi and His Contemporaries is also self-consciously, multi-disciplinary in approach, which might perhaps be truer to a man who never made boundaries himself.
