PHILOSOPHY TEA: Mahatma Gandhi

Plats Uppsala

This autumn Professor Peter Wallensteen and Lecturer Daniel Ogden will continue their popular Philosophy Tea talks.

In this Philosophy Tea we scrutinize the life, achievements and legacy of the icon of nonviolent action Mohandas K. Gandhi, better known as Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948). His work began with Asian resistance against White rule in South Africa and led to a number of campaigns for India’s self-determination in the 1920s and 1930s, contributing to the country’s independence in 1947. In his book My life is My Message he summarised his thinking about nonviolence and its role in social change. Undoubtedly he is one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century but at the same time remains enigmatic: not easy to follow or. We will attempt to illuminate some aspects of his life as well as his contribution to providing a role for the marginalised around the globe.

Föreläsningen genomförs med ekonomiskt stöd från Folkuniversitetsföreningen.
