The Religion and Philosophy of Non-Violence: Gandhi and King

Prerequisites: PHIL 110, REL 110 or instructor's consent.The 20th century experienced the development of two of the most important social movements in history, the freedom movement in India and the civil rights movement in the United States. Both these movements were based on and directed by the idea of non-violence as a religion/philosophy of social change. This course will explore the development of the intellectual ideas and the social manifestation of this religion/philosophy of non-violence. Using the lives of M.K. Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. as the guides, the course will consider how the religion/philosophy of non-violence was developed and how it was used to change the largest democracy in the world (India) and the most powerful nation in the world (the United States). This course is cross-referenced with PHIL 225.
