The weight of violence : religion, language, politics by Violence, Language' International Conference on 'Religion( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays collected in this volume deal with one central theme: How do we now make sense of existence in a world that is constantly threatened by destruction of sense. The contributors, exploring answers to this complex problematique from different disciplinary perspectives maintain that the question concerning the sense of existence and its destruction is essentially tied up with the question of violence: violence as radical destruction of sense for and of existence. Responses to this question, however, can be as irreducible and singular as can they be varied and multiple. Taking up the religious and linguistic forms of violence as their main focus, these essays argue that the place of violence in our contemporary historical condition has accelerated to an ever immeasurable measure, and that this demands urgent responses from intellectuals and activists alike
Troubled diversity : the political process in Northeast India by Sandhya Goswami( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Troubled Diversity' provides a comprehensive analysis of the conflict situation in the northeastern region of India by addressing questions such as: why identity politics centering around ethnicity is more intense in this region? For creating and consolidating its respective identities, why does every ethnic group make and effort to construct its other? How does the ideology of the other motivate and guide identity politics?
Caring to know : comparative care ethics, feminist epistemology, and the Mahābhārata by Vrinda Dalmiya( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a venture in the emerging field of comparative feminist philosophy, this work goes against the current trend of considering 'caring' and 'knowing' as independent of each other. It argues for what can be called a care-based epistemology modelled on the now-familiar care ethics. Using critical insights from the Mahabharata, the book proposes that knowing and caring can be fruitfully theorized 'together', while keeping the argument firmly rooted in mainstream Anglo-Western virtue epistemology. What emerges is a feminist epistemology that uses the methods of creative comparative philosophy to come up with a concept of 'relational humility' as the fulcrum of a new theory of knowing. On the one hand, the epistemic and ethical paradigms given in the Mahabharata are interrogated though the political lens of contemporary feminist theory. On the other, the scope of traditional care ethics and virtue epistemology is broadened through a dialogue with an epic's narrative meditations on living well and knowing well in a very different context. Such a cross-cultural exploration gives us a robust conception of a 'good knower' who is both an ethical agent as well as ready to make interventions in various forms of epistemic injustices
