He also considers how the success of Gandhis principles were limited by his lack of coherent theories of evil, and of state and power. Gandhis view of man as ascetic allows no room for expressions of the cultural, artistic, or intellectual. Furthermore, he was so hostile to modern civilization that he was unable to appreciate its complex dialectic or offer a meaningful narrative.
