Comparative Philosophy and Religion in Times of Terror

Серия: "-"

Comparative philosophy and religion can help us to understand the violence and terror that often dominate our world. These new, creative studies - ranging in scope from ancient Biblical, Greek, Indian, and Chinese formulations to recent religious and philosophical positions - broaden and deepen our understanding of terror and present new possibilities for greater nonviolence, peace, and true security.
