Synopsis

Published earlier in 2011, this book now appears in its second updated and enlarged edition. Mahatma Gandhi holds an eminent position in the history of ethics and its application to contemporary concerns. This book brings together in one harmonious whole three systems of thoughts on ethics- Indian, Western and Gandhian. It shows how Gandhi, drawing from the other two traditions, made a creative contribution of his own in making ethics richer and more relevant than ever before. Nadkarni explores both the theoretical as well as applied ethical issues. In the context of modern ethical enquiries on religion, social justice, eqity, harmony between faiths, humanism and environmental concerns, he analyses in detail contemporary delimma posed by economic growth, business ethics, gender justice, and specific policy issues like preferential treatment of socially disadvantaged groups, capital punishment, and abortion. Nadkarni stresses the need for a holistic approach to resolve moral questions in everyday life. Written in a lucid style with an Indian ethos, the book nevertheless has a universal appeal.
