The lecture explores whether defenders of human rights can draw ideas and encouragement from Mahatma Gandhi at a time when extremists of diverse hues claim that threats to their religion or nation justify curbs on liberty and equality. It will also ask whether nonviolent and “Gandhian” strategies can indicate an alternative when violent methods alienate world opinion and invite greater oppression.

Pax Gandhiana

                    The Political Philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi

Anthony J Parel

  • Identifies the conceptual framework of Gandhi's political philosophy, and analyzes his political philosophy within that framework
  • Argues that civic nonviolence--not monastic nonviolence--is the sort of nonviolence that Gandhi's political philosophy defends
  • Highlights how Gandhi, towards the end of his career, shifted the focus of his political philosophy from satyagraha (civil disobedience) to what he called "constructive program"
