1 Ramin Jahanbegloo
India Revisited: Conversations on Contemporary India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195689445 / 9780195689440; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
In India Revisited, Ramin Jahanbegloo converses with twenty-seven leading Indian personalities––social scientists, journalists, activists, artists, and sports persons— to gain an understanding of contemporary Indian society. Jahanbegloo, an Iranian-Canadian philosopher and Gandhi scholar, raises interesting questions about the seeming contradictions of life in India: the long history of religious tolerance juxtaposed with growing religious fundamentalism, democracy being challenged by a persistent caste system, the Indian ethos of equality contested by the low status of women, affluent urban areas that contrast with the impoverished rural tracts, among other issues. The responses to these questions presented in the conversations in this book, present a unique and hopeful view of India sixty years after independence. Breaking new ground in the East-East dialogue, this book reveals that something more than economic wealth, political power, and technological ambition is needed to combat corruption, poverty, and inequality in India. This, for all of Jahanbegloo’s interviewees, is in line with the the social thinking of great thinkers like Mahatma Gandhi and Rabindranath Tagore, and the strength of the pluralistic Indian religious and cultural framework. 020893

2 Ashis Nandy in Conversation with Ramin Jahanbegloo
Talking India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195678982 / 9780195678987; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Multifaceted thinker and prolific author, Ashis Nandy is considered to be one of India’s leading intellectuals. For someone trained as a clinical psychologist and later as a sociologist, he continues to capture the imagination of the reading public and those interested in ideas, for his fertile mind, myriad and unpredictable ways of thinking and the essential humanism which all his writings signify. This book is a series of comprehensive interviews conducted by Ramin Jahanbegloo at Teheran and organized over six sessions. The interviewer questions Nandy within the context of his own ‘Indian-ness’ as also his affinity (and criticisms) for things Indian: whether it be thought, religion or pluralistic tendencies. The essence of Ashis Nandy and his perspectives on a wide range of things include political philosophy, democracy, India and Pakistan, globalization, Indian culture and tradition, and Gandhi, are all revealed. Throughout the interview, Nandy brings to bear his formidable intellect on these questions, which is always challenging and engaging. Printed Pages: 160. 015914

3 Ramin Jahanbegloo
Talking Philosophy: Richard Sorabji in Conversation with Ramin Jahanbegloo
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0199462887 / 9780199462889; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In this engaging dialogue that moves effortlessly across interdisciplinary boundaries, Richard Sorabji expounds, with astounding clarity and candidness, on a broad range of issues such as the moral philosophy behind the concepts of just war and 'humanitarian intervention', whether it is possible to be a Stoic today, and whether there is such a thing as a continuous self. He surveys the four leading ancient schools of philosophical thought—Aristotelian, Stoic, Platonist (including Neoplatonist), and Epicurean—and analyses the differences in their approach to various subjects. Talking Philosophy is as much a recollection of Sorabji's childhood and his scholarly life at Oxford as it is a philosophical reflection on issues as varied and complex as whether animals have reason or whether Gandhi could be considered an ethical role model. The seventh book in the series of Ramin Jahanbegloo's interviews of prominent intellectuals, it provides a fascinating glimpse into the life and mind of one of the most outstanding comparative philosophers of our time. Printed Pages: 154. 104496
