    The ‘Philosopher Monarch’ was an ideal of Plato’s. The age of the Antonines in Rome produced five of them in quick succession. Thereafter, these three contemporaries more or less fulfilled the same ideal of Kingship. Their attitude to their subjects, and particularly to their minority subjects, is a lesson in the modern Constitutional Ideal of Fraternity, assuring the dignity of the individual, and the unity and integrity of the Nation

    Description:

    Through a Different Lens: Should India adopt a more civilisation view of the World

    Speaker: Dr. Shiv Visvanathansocial scientist , currently Professor at O P Jindal Global University

     Chair: President, IIC

    The talk is an attempt to ask a question for contemporary times. The idea of civilisation has been used more to grasp the sacred, the sense of heritage and the idea of tradition. Words like Nationalism, Development and Globalism seem more appropriate for contemporary narratives on statecraft or policy. We dramatize ourselves within the frame-work of the nation-state with its accompanying ideas of citizenship, boundary, security and contract. This lecture suggests that may be a civilisation view of India is more relevant than a nationalist perspective. It considers a few thought experiments like the idea of South Asia, Climate Change and the notion of Sustainability to develop its argument
