The Virtue of Nonviolence: From Gautama to Gandhi
SUNY Press, 18.11.2005 - 240 sivua
Virtue ethics has been a major focus in contemporary moral philosophy since the publication of Alasdair MacIntyre’s book After Virtue. Here, in The Virtue of Nonviolence, Nicholas F. Gier argues that virtue ethics is the best option for constructive postmodern philosophy and that Gandhi’s own thought is best viewed in light of this tradition. He supports this position by formulating Gandhi’s ethics of nonviolence as a virtue ethics, giving a Buddhist interpretation of Gandhi’s philosophy, and presenting Gandhi as a constructive postmodern thinker. Also included is an assessment of the saints of nonviolence—Buddha, Christ, King, and Gandhi—and a charismatic theory of the nature of the saints.
