Put in terms of their essentials, these gropings begin with the difficult validity puzzle ethical epistemology amounts to, continue with the centrality of nonviolence in all Indian thought, and then close with the discussion of the radical contrast between this nonviolence and the holistic - not solely ecological - environmentalism of our own times, interesting though it is that Indian thought today sees, by and large, no such contrast.
