This book explores a new angle on Gandhi's life and work, the way in which his interest in medical matters shows itself in his language and his responses to situations, people and movements. A dialogue is set up across space and time, highlighting Gandhi's diagnoses of causes and cures, and his unfailing focus on the needs of his own people. Discussions include his critique of Russian thinkers, Mazzini, and an extensive examination of his interest in Charles Bradlaugh which brings out the interplay between Gandhi's courtroom experience and his way of distinguishing between truth and untruth. Analyses of his understanding of the moral equivalent of war, the image of the oceanic circle, tradition and modernity, further illustrate his diagnostic approach, laying bare both the intellectual sinews of his thought as well as his constant stress on praxis. Relating Gandhi's hermeneutic of practice to present-day conditions and the maladies which beset us, the author offers an epilogue which will not fail to provoke the reader.
