    The western philosophical tradition has been abidingly occupied with the duality of the mind and the body. The soul is substantially the same as the mind for this tradition. In the Indian tradition, however, there is no duality between the mind and the body. The mind is an organ of the body, and I-consciousness is nothing but the ego which is a construct of the mind. For Gandhi, the human body is central to the articulation of the moral life. Concepts (...)

    Ethics: Western and Indian.Mrinal Miri - 2023 - In Mrinal Miri & Bindu Puri (eds.), Gandhi for the 21st Century: Religion, Morality and Politics. Springer Nature Singapore. pp. 5141663-6258668.
    The influence of Christianity on Western moral philosophy is unmistakable. The enlightenment certainly made a difference. But Reason replaced God, morality retained its universality and became secular. The dharma tradition is firmly grounded in practical reality, and while universality has a place in it, its focus is on particularity and contextual specificity. Gandhi was firmly rooted in the Indian tradition and derived his inspiration primarily from the Gita. Some of the central Gandhian ideas on morality are: truth, ahimsa, satyagraha, sacrifice, (...)

    Gandhi for the 21st Century: Religion, Morality and Politics.Mrinal Miri & Bindu Puri (eds.) - 2023 - Springer Nature Singapore.
    This book examines the centrality of ideas such as satya (truth), ahimsa (non-violence), humility, and respect for understanding moral life in the complex milieu of human existence. It provides a comprehensive view of how Gandhian ideas have both a temporal and spatial universality significantly different from Western modern philosophy's universality claims. The chapters represent different styles of philosophy but with a common purpose, offering insights into how the global debates on religion, morality, and politics are assessed from Gandhi's point of (...)

    Gandhi’s Religion.Mrinal Miri - 2023 - In Mrinal Miri & Bindu Puri (eds.), Gandhi for the 21st Century: Religion, Morality and Politics. Springer Nature Singapore. pp. 185-198.
    Liberal politics relegates religion to the sphere of the private. The public world is secular. “Privacy”, however, cannot imply “private to a person”; it must mean “private to a community”. Religion must be public at least within the community. Spiritual experience, part of most religions, though private in an acceptable sense, is something that takes place within the trappings of a religious culture, sustained by the religious community. The only criterion of the authenticity of a spiritual experience is its moral (...)

    Introduction.Mrinal Miri - 2023 - In Mrinal Miri & Bindu Puri (eds.), Gandhi for the 21st Century: Religion, Morality and Politics. Springer Nature Singapore. pp. 1-4.
    The book consists of six chapters—three by Bindu Puri and the other three by me. Our styles are different—the result perhaps of the different kinds of training we had received as students. But our interests coincide and frequently our arguments: Puri’s arguments clothed in the rich narrative style where the philosophy unmistakably shines through and mine somewhat skeletally just philosophical.

    Philosophy and Education.Mrinal Miri - 2014 - New Delhi, India: Oxford University Press India.
    The book brings philosophical considerations to bear upon our understanding of the concept of education and concepts related to it. It seeks to answer questions such as: is education a unitary concept, or is it a cluster of concepts which are more or less related to one another? Are there values which are constitutive of the practice of education? Is moral education an independent variety of education, or is it necessary internal to all educational practice?

    The Idea of Surplus: Tagore and Contemporary Human Sciences.Mrinal Miri (ed.) - 2015 - Routledge India.
    This book provides an analytical understanding of some of Tagore’s most contested and celebrated works and ideas. It reflects on his critique of nationalism, aesthetic worldview, and the idea of ‘surplus in man’ underlying his life and works. It discusses the creative notion of surplus that stands not for ‘profit’ or ‘value’, but for celebrating human beings’ continuous quest for reaching out beyond one’s limits. It highlights, among other themes, how the idea of being ‘Indian’ involves stages of evolution through (...)
