Nonviolence: Practical Possibility or Pipe Dream?


The discussion will begin with a brief examination of theories that attempt to explain the genesis of human violence. It will then turn to an examination of the philosophical foundations of non-violence followed by historical examples of non-violent implementation (Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, and Abdul Ghaffar Khan). It will conclude with a discussion of the practical possibilities and challenges of a non-violent approach to conflict.
