    W e are indebted to many friends and colleagues who have helped us in our understanding of Gandhi and preparation of this book. This book has been possible mainly because of the unstinted support and encouragement received from Prof. Bhikhu Parekh.

Calcutta, Calcutta Book House []. Gandhi’s political philosophy integrates the ethical, the moral, the aesthetic, and the spiritual into a political way of being that is not only best suited for India’s transition from colony to independent nation, but also implicitly offers a standing critique of what Western politics was, is, and seems destined to : John Evolution of the political philosophy of Gandhi.

book LeBlanc. Political thought of Gandhi is based on a hierarchy of ultimate and relative values, which are to be realized by human society through a gradual process of empirical evolution. Every political philosopher believes in certain values, both ultimate and relative, though he may not be conscious of it.

found in the Bhagavad Gita, the core of Gandhi’s political philosophy is discipline of self and community. Indeed, this is the idea that links it to active engagement in the world.

We find the focus on discipline in Parel’s emphasis upon swaraj as well as his reading of Gandhi’s evolving understanding of satyagraha. Swaraj Author: John Randolph LeBlanc.

Introduction. Today the world is facing the adverse effects of violence. Countries which once thrived on violence and terror are fast realising the futility of hatred. This article which was published in the Sunday Statesman, Kolkata 8 Februaryasserts that Gandhi's philosophy of nonviolence is being accepted worldwide to create a peaceful and harmonious society.

Its political aspect was expressed by the late eminent Gandhian Dr R.R. Diwakar in the following words: "The good of each individual in society consists in his efforts to achieve the good of all.". Chapter: 3 Socio-Political Thought of Mahatma Gandhi Introduction M.

It means that Gandhi evolved as a unique combination of a Mahatma who had a highly moral and spiritual position that was necessarily political, and a shrewd political strategist who had a political position that was necessarily moral and spiritual.
