In this book I offer an exposition and interpretation of Gandhi but also use his ideas to illuminate some issues in contemporary legal, social, moral and political philosophy. I critically examine some of Gandhi’s ideas on love, non-violence, necessary evil and the battle against evil, rights and duties, religious reform and toleration, morality and public ethic, coercion, civil disobedience and non-cooperation. One of the main themes running through Gandhi’s life and work was the battle against evil. Non-violence, love in the sense of compassion, truth and self-sacrifice, purity of heart and humility, detachment and equanimity, non-cooperation and civil disobedience were some of his weapons. The battle was against the evil, not the evil-doer.
