Studies in Modern Jewish and Hindu Thought by Margaret Chatterjee



Chatterjee (philosophy, Westminster College) turns her attention to what happens when peoples proud of an ancient civilization of their own enter the modern era and contemporary history. The treatment is restricted to a few themes: the critique of civilization, the concept of labor, self-definition, the pursuit of realization either individually or collectively, the use of evolution as a resource concept, and the critique of nationalism which ran parallel to its pursuit. She discusses such thinkers as Mahatma Gandhi, Max Nordau, A.D. Gordon, Martin Buber, Sri Aurobindo, Rav Kook and Rabindranath Tagore. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
