LIFEWORLDS PHILOSOPHY AND INDIA TODAY
LIFEWORLDS PHILOSOPHY AND INDIA TODAY
Description
About the Book:

The author argues that the analysis of lifeworlds can enable the philosopher to turn a diagnostic eye on matters of concrete concern such as the critique of culture, problems of identity in fast-changing environments, the extent of responsibility, and the criteria of responsibility, and the criteria of prioritization in issues of public policy. Multiculturalism provides material for analysis, and this is followed by discussion of explicit and implicit violence, for the cultures of violence are plural. This leads to the consideration of religion in contemporary society and why it often seems to lend itself to exploitation.
