Probing the Man behind the Mahatma: analyzing the life and works of Mohandas Gandhi

Description

A UNC course exploring the life, works and acts of Mohandas Gandhi. We attempt to evaluate Gandhi on his own terms; we try to tell his story by looking at his works and acts. By doing so, we try to gain an understanding of what motivated him to act, what constituted(/and constitutes) Gandhian philosophy, and whether we can emulate his means of initiating political change through "satyagraha" - truth struggle - and "ahimsa" - non violence - today. We engage in a dialogue with Gandhi to understand our own lives, times and crises.
