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"
