This is an attempt to present Dr. Ambedkar’s vision of humanism in various forms. Like any other great thinker he has been interpreted as social reformer scholar politician philosopher constitutionalist economist all the more an emancipator as well as a liberator for the oppressed people from slavery serfdom tyranny economic exploitation religious obscurantism and untouchability. Dr. Ambedkar relentlessly fought for the cause of the depressed and the deprived of the Indian society and this is what brings him to develop his philosophy of humanism which centers round the problems of man without meddling in the vortex of metaphysical exercises.
The humanism of Dr. Ambedkar originated spontaneously in his struggle against social inequality and evils. It grew into a distinct ideological movement and action raising the slogans of liberty equality and fraternity in favour of men’s rights to freely develop their potentialities and personalities. This is why Dr. Ambedkar’s dynamic and democratic humanism aims at liberating man from the odds of social malaise. The book provides an interesting and intellectual reading and thus it is a valuable contribution to the field of Ambedkar thought and movement.
