2 Anthony J. Parel
Gandhi's Philosophy and the Quest for Harmony
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2008; 0521727480 / 9780521727488; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Anthony Parel affords a novel perspective on the philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi. He explores how Gandhi connected the spiritual with the temporal. As Parel points out 'being more things than one' is a good description of Gandhi and, with these words in mind, he shows how Gandhi, drawing on the Indian time-honoured theory of the purusharthas or 'the aims of life', fitted his ethical, political, aesthetic and religious ideas together. In this way Gandhi challenged the notion which prevailed in Indian society that a rift existed between the secular and the spiritual, the political and the contemplative life. Parel's revealing and insightful book shows how far-reaching were the effects of Gandhi's practical philosophy on Indian thought generally and how these have survived into the present. • Provides new and fascinating insights into Gandhi’s philosophy and how he reconciled an active with a reflective life • For students and scholars in religious studies, philosophy, politics, history and anthropology • Written by the author of the acclaimed Gandhi: 'Hind Swaraj' and Other Writings Contents Preface; Acknowledgements; Part I.

Hind Swaraj is Mahatma Gandhi’s fundamental work. Not only is it key to understanding his life and thoughts, but also the politics of South Asia in the first half of the twentieth century. Celebrating 100 years since Hind Swaraj was first published in a newspaper, this centenary edition includes a new Preface and Editor’s Introduction, as well as a new chapter on ‘Gandhi and the 'Four Canonical Aims of Life'’. The volume presents a critical edition of the 1910 text of Hind Swaraj, fully annotated and including Gandhi’s own Preface and Foreword (not found in other editions). Anthony J. Parel sets the work in its historical and political contexts and analyses the significance of Gandhi’s experiences in England and South Africa. The second part of the volume contains some of Gandhi’s other writings, including his correspondence with Tolstoy and Nehru.
