Predrag Cicovacki, Carlo Filice, Sanjay Lal Author Meets Critics: Predrag Cicovacki, Author of Gandhi’s Footprints, Meets Critics Sanjay Lal and Carlo Filice
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
Two critics respond to Predrag Cicovacki’s book, Gandi’s Footprints. Cicovacki opens the discussion by presenting his motivations for exploring a paradox, that Gandhi’s work is widely revered but not widely emulated. Cicovacki explores a resolution to the paradox by suggesting how Gandhi’s promising visions may be followed without being imitated, especially Gandhi’s insight that we must seek spiritual grounding for life in a materialistic world. Critic Sanjay Lal affirms Cicovacki’s insight but suggests that precisely because Gandhi’s aspirations for spiritual life were profoundly transformative we should take care not to dilute them into our conventional wisdoms. Critic Carlo Filice asks how Gandhi’s commitment to unified reality could be more clearly articulated once a distinction is drawn between spirit and matter, also how Gandhi’s nonviolence could manage to embrace important exceptions. In reply to critics, Cicovacki proposes an approach to Gandhi informed by the insights of Tagore.

Sanjay Lal Clarifying The Place Of Love In Gandhian Non-Violence
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
Those who accept a philosophy of non-violence akin to that advocated by Mahatma Gandhi commonly think of their stance as being in line with (if not actually called for) by the demands of love. It has not been hard for commentators to offer scenarios that present problems for this assumption. In what follows I will argue that such problems are overcome by Gandhi because he insists that the love required by nonviolence should be construed as universal, non-discriminating, and selfless in the widest sense—agape in its fullness. I will further show that problems presented for the view that Gandhian non-violence fits with and follows the demands of love exist for us, Gandhi holds, only in so far as we have not fully realized they type of love discussed here.
