A Man for All Seasons

A Man for All Seasons

Mahatma Gandhi’s Integral Pluralism

(p.123) 7. A Man for All Seasons
Integral Pluralism

University Press of Kentucky

Ethics and religious faith are similarly sequestered or privatized, unless they are released from their ghetto for the sake of a forced synthesis (sometimes labeled “fundamentalism”). Rare are the individuals who are able to develop as well as harmonize their different faculties—people the Indian scriptures call stable or sattva because, by bringing “all their senses into harmony,” they maintain stable balance. One prominent individual in recent history illustrates the sattva quality in exemplary fashion: Mahatma Gandhi, a statesman, erudite intellectual, man of letters, and devotee of the arts, as well as an ethicist and person of faith. In a famous stage play, Robert Bolt celebrated Thomas More as “a man for all seasons.”
