While all of the contributors to this collection edited by Allen (philosophy, U. of Maine) agree the Mahatma Gandhi is philosophically significant and relevant for the 21st century, there is nevertheless significant disagreement within these pages about the exact nature of that significance and relevance. Topics addressed by the 12 contributions include Gandhi's views on interreligious conflict and dialogue; his formulation of the proper relationship between the secular and the spiritual; his philosophy of violence, nonviolence, and education; his formulation of the right to civil disobedience; his views on the mutually reinforcing dynamic of imperialist and anti-imperialist terrorism; his engagement with Hindu-Muslim communal violence; his religious ethics; his critique of modernity; and his conception of a new society.
