Gandhi and Jewish Philosophers / Trans-different Encounters

Ephraim Meir


In previous books, Ephraim Meir developed an interreligious theology that promotes deep communication and dialogue without neglecting the particularities of each religion or culture. In this present book he proposes a pre-eminent example of his dialogical theology in which “trans-difference” is central. Through a series of virtual encounters, he brings Mahatma Gandhi into conversation with a variety of Jewish philosophers. Focusing on the realization of a peaceful and just society, and on the challenge of active nonviolence, he compares Gandhi's views with those of Buber, Levinas and Heschel. Recontextualizing Gandhi, he points to the potential of Gandhi's transformational praxis for Israelis and Palestinians.
