Note In 'Jain Approaches to Plurality' Melanie Barbato offers a new perspective on the Jain teaching of plurality ('anekantavada') and how it allowed Jains to engage with other discourses from Indian inter-school philosophy to global interreligious dialogue. Jainism, one of the world?s oldest religions, has managed to both adapt and preserve its identity across time through its inherently dialogical outlook. Drawing on a wide range of textual sources and original research in India, Barbato analyses the encounters between Jains and non-Jains in the classical, colonial and global context. 'Jain Approaches to Plurality' offers a comprehensive introduction to 'anekantavada' as a non-Western resource for understanding plurality and engaging in dialogue
