    Description
    This book breaks new ground by treating matters which are broadly philosophical but leaving behind the method of linear argument. Centring the various ways in which the contemporary world struggles with the theme of otherness, whether as enemies, neighbours or friends, the author comes to grips with the multifold dimensions of culture, alternating scholarly analysis with references to everyday life, so that the reader is constantly stimulated to fresh reflection.

    Her oeuvre is moulded by ventures in various styles of writing including many studies of Gandhi's life and thought; sketches of persons and places inspired by her wide travels; recall of conversations; poems; and exchange of ideas presented in the form of letters. Her many skills as a writer now find their fullest expression in what must be regarded as a major work.

    About the Author
    As a student Margaret Chatterjee read Modern Greats (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) at Oxford where she was awarded an exhibition at Somerville College. This fostered a lifelong interest in the interrelation between the three. Opportunities for teaching at university level in several countries provided new horizons. Her experiences convinced her that otherness in diverse forms is writ large in the problems we face today, whether it be the relation between human beings and inanimate nature, animals and humans and what an earlier generation of thinkers called 'man's place in the cosmos.'
