The articles explore the lesser known topics that had occupied Swami Vivekananda’s thought, including that of economic and political philosophy of and for his vision of Bharat. The first article details the influence that Swami Vivekananda seems to have had on the Indian political and constitutional thought. This includes his influence on the Indian courts and justice system as such; Swami Vivekananda, it is mentioned, is oft quoted in many important legal judgments that are given by senior judges.
The author mentions specific cases and judgments in order to elaborate his argument. The second article explores Vivekananda’s economic and by extension, political philosophy. In the article, one sees Vivekananda’s theory of history based on the cyclical ages of caste and the economic purpose of each caste, in each of the ages as described by him. This in turn delves into the idea of the forces of equality and those of inequality in a society, therefore tying up the political with the economic.
We are sure this publication will expose the readers to the hitherto unexplored dimensions of Swami Vivekananda’s thoughts.
