Editorial Reviews

Review

David Lorimer - A remarkably comprehensive explanation of the Jain philosophy of the interconnectedness of being and its significance for our approach to the environment drawing on the principles of interdependence and reverence for life. Truth is presented as not only one- but also many-sided, opening up interfaith dialogue and an attitude of non-violence relevant to the modern human predicament. The book encourages us to develop relationships based on co-operation, compassion and trust. Jainism is presented as a philosophy to rein in the materialistic and exploitative trends of modern life and overcome our sense of separation from Nature and each other. The book is also hopeful of human possibilities and presents an expanded view of perception and logic. Essential reading for anyone interested in the philosophy and implications of Jainism for our time.
