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

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 78 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

Learning non-violence by Gangeya Mukherji( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume on non-violence engage on one plane with the totality of the concept, while at another they acknowledge the porosity of the idea of non-violence, particularly with respect to praxis or what can be thought of as learnt non-violence. Conceived and osmotically structured around four themes - religion, protest, the modern condition, and the world today - the book is an invitation to consider the practical possibilities of non-violence, aiming therewith to develop a transaction between modern discourses and the ancient vocabulary of the concept. The essays trace its thematic gamut, from recognising the problematic of social/justice where non-violence may not be a manifest option, and considering possibilities of transforming one's own self through a near perfect realization of non-violence; from exploring its expression in postcolonial theory and contemporary literature to reflecting on its manifestations as virtue, emotion, and technique in specific situations, and to surveying the ground of non violence in the social body and its mind.0Approaching the theme from their varied disciplinary perspectives, the contributors offer a rich intersection of not only the past and present, but between various disciplinary approaches to theorizing the concept, and to visualising the possibilities of a sustainable moral pedagogy of non-violence
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 )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mahābhārata explores the plausibility of care-based epistemology in a comparative key. Investigating the epistemic virtue of care-giving, the work weaves together insights from care ethics, virtue epistemology and a particular reading of the Mahābhārata which, left to themselves, do not appear compatible with one another. Drawing on these traditions, the work goes on to provide a feminist vision of search for truth that is consistent with both ethical relations and interventions for justice
