Abstract

In an increasingly multi-religious and multi-ethnic world, identity has become something actively chosen rather than merely acquired at birth. This book essentially analyzes the resources available to make such a choice. Looking into the world of intellectual India, Emily Coolidge Toker finds that this unique comparative survey focuses on the identity resources offered by India’s traditions of reasoning and public debate. This groundbreaking work by Jonardon Ganeri builds on themes developed by Amartya Sen to provide a creative pursuit of Indian reasoning that will appeal to anyone studying politics, philosophy, and Asian political thought.
