Search for a New Humanity: A Dialogue Between Josef Derbolav and Daisaku Ikeda
In the tradition of the great philosophers, the two authors of this book engage in a dialogue on fundamental issues, including tradition and modernization, humanism in the East and the West, and the role of ethics and religion in contemporary society. Through this systematic encounter between Buddhism and Christianity, they hope to offer a bridge of understanding between Asian and European cultures and somehow contribute to the improvement of the human situation today.
