15732. The Defense of Pacifism in Hind Swaraj (Gandi) and Three Guineas (Woolf).
The arguments of both Gandhi and Woolf are "socially limited" (Gandhi is concerned with rejecting modernism and using passive resistance to attain India's liberation; Woolf is concerned with the role of women in promoting peace, which she sees as being limited by patriarchal oppression). Despite these limits, the views on pacifism of both authors have value; nevertheless, it is argued that Woolf's approach is less practical because she seeks to achieve a more generalized and idealized goal. 8 pages, 15 footnotes, 2 bibliographic sources.
