Subaltern Morality

Subaltern Morality

A Postmodern Vision

by Ramesh Chandra Sinha

About The Book

The expression Subaltern was used by Italian Marxist, Antonio Gramsci, in Prison Notebooks. However, it is interpreted differently in this book. The concept includes caste, color, gender, and class. It is not an economic category but a cultural one. It is different from the Marxist interpretation of the term proletariat. Marxists’ morality is class-bound; Subaltern morality is not. In an attempt to deconstruct the age-old egalitarian morality, the author proposes the morality of those outside the circle and suggests a postmodern vision to understand subaltern morality. Offering challenging insights into the conception of global justice, the author subscribes to the Aristotelian contention of distributive justice, where equals are treated equally, and unequal are treated unequally.

Subaltern Morality (Seemant Naitikta) is a new contribution to applied ethics.
