Political Philosophy of Ambedkar

Political Philosophy of Ambedkar: An Inquiry into the Theoretical Foundations of the Dalit Movement by P. Kesava Kumar from Kalpaz Publications.

Bharat Ratna Dr. B.R. Ambedkar was a prominent political thinker of our times. He negotiated with the grand political theories such as liberalism, conservatism, Marxism and communitarianism in his own authentic and indigenous way. His philosophy is ethical, rational, pragmatic and democratic in its spirit.

His political thought internalizes the principles of equality, liberty and fraternity. He philosophizes the Indian social reality from a victim’s perspective but provides insights to transform a victim into a human with courage of conviction and inalienable dignity.

This book presents an in-depth study of the political philosophy of Ambedkar. Theorising the Dalit movement, it critically analyses the problems and philosophical underpinnings of contemporary Dalit movement.
