Description

Mahatma Gandhi holds an eminent position in the history of ethics and their application to contemporary concerns. This book brings together three systems of thought on ethics—Indian, Western, and Gandhian—in one harmonious whole. It demonstrates how Gandhi, drawing from the other two traditions, made a creative contribution by enriching the domain of ethics and establishing it as more relevant than ever before.  Featuring a new section on contemporary concerns, with a particular focus on business ethics and gender justice, this updated and enhanced second edition explores both theoretical as well as applied ethical issues.  In the context of modern ethical enquiries on religion, social justice, equity, harmony between faiths, humanism, and environmental concerns, it analyses contemporary dilemmas posed by economic growth and policy specific issues. Emphasizing the need for a holistic approach to resolve moral questions in everyday life, the author in this philosophical study explores the continued relevance of ethics in today’s world.
