A Review of “Gandhica”
Pravat Kumar Dhal, India
The 67th project of GHA “Gandhica”* (240 pages) by the leadership of Professor Leo Semashko (Russia) was appeared in October2, 2019 as a marvelous unique creation of 82 coauthors of the 25 countries having focused on India’s icon Mahatma Gandhi’s nonviolence practices as greatest tool to establish peace and harmony in the humankind. It is an innovative integrated means of scientific interpretation of social reality through “spherons” proceeded as “tetranet thinking” based on discovery of Karl Marx (4 spheres of social production), Maturana (autopoiesis) and Parsons (societal communities) and long term experience of GHA. Spherons are the source ofhuman life, the foundation of all its higher and eternal values: harmony, peace, solidarity, nonviolenece, justice, unity, freedom, equality, fraternity, love and happiness. It provides an adequate scientific understanding of the Gandhian adventure of humanity from violence to nonviolence. The project carries both theoretical and empirical evidence with statistical data of the new “substantial reality” of the Globe. It encourages the intellectual scientific socio-cybernetic understanding and conscious way of peace and harmony through nonviolence against dominant traditional militaristic thinking. GHA believes in universal peace making true spirituality of the future of humanity through revelation of the deep social nature of the non-violence.
The four parts of this project: ontology, epistemology, sociology and statistics reveals valuable attributes of human life like truth, peace, harmony, love, disarmament, freedom, equality, fraternity and democracy. It expresses the synthesis of ‘ABC Harmony’, ‘Global peace science’, new manner thinking of Einstein, potentiality of Gandhi’s nonviolence, Pawlik’s Hack of Cybernetics, the art of Picasso, poetic genius of Tholana, Tetranet thinking of Leo, John Kennedy’s thinking“to end the war before war ends the humanity,” shift the arms race into a peace race (Martin Luther King Jr.) and Copernican scientific revolution of humanitarian knowledge with spirituality leading towards peace and harmony in the civilizations.It is a constructive holistic nonviolent transformative multidimensional means of fundamental social understanding against destructive reality, violence, genocide, ecocide, death, war, hatred, hostility, slavery and traditional militarism. Gandhica is a unique invaluable lovable treatise of mankind represents the collective consciousness of greatest intellects in the Globe. The three H’s (hand, head, and heart) of ‘satyagraha’ makes it a new science of consciousness. The lifelong penance of principal author, philosopher, social reformer, Professor Leo and his great inspiration and effort along with its coauthors’ contributions make the project a gala success. This treaty will certainly helpful for academia, peace aspirants,peace builders, conflict managers, researchers, and social reformers, as rich source of information and guide for creating New World Order and Global Peace.
