With Amartya Sen, A Global Ethic from Ancient India. What can ancient Indian thinkers Ashoka and Kautilya tell us about how to think about the dilemmas of globalization in the 21st Century? What are the ethical limits to use of force and to prioritizing the economy? What kind of global ethic do we need for a globalized world? Amartya Sen talks in the first 12:34 minutes, minute 12:34 to 41:48 is my talk, then 25 minutes or so of questions and discussion with the audience, Amartya Sen, Homi Bhabha and myself. The event was sponsored by the Harvard South Asia Initiative.
