Presented at a social philosophy conference held at Gujarat University, Ahmedabad, India in 1991, the papers in this collection discuss basic rights and the corresponding responsibilities of living in social communities. The conference provided opportunites for Western and Indian delegates to address each culture's attitudes. Westerners tend to think primarily in terms of "rights", while the moral thinking of Indians tends to commence from the concept of "dharma" (duty or obligation). The volume should be useful to those who seek to acquaint themselves with themes and concepts in Indian philosophy, and to explore their connections or relevance to debates and issues in contemporary social thought in the West.
