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.
