2015 1-4955-0305-4
To underscore the moral crisis that plagues liberal democracy, the author seeks answers by drawing from both Western and Asian thought in this outstanding analysis in political ethics. Starting with Gamwell’s theory, which is grounded on God and offers a common goal for political community and establishes a firm ground for morality and political ethics the author advances and reformulates Gamwell’s theory, using the insights and resources provided by Gandhi bringing a global dimension to this original critique.
