Choose life : a dialogue by Arnold Toynbee ( Book )
18 editions published between 1976 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The topics discussed in this book are of very diverse kinds. Some of them are urgent concern at the present time, but some of them are issues of perennial importance that have been pondered and discussed by human beings ever since the unknown date at which our ancestors first awoke to consciousness. It seems probable that these perennial questions will continue to be debated so long as mankind survives in the psychosomatic form in which we exist in our material environment, that is to say, in the biosphere that covers the planet earth
Buddhism, the first millennium by Daisaku Ikeda ( Book )
22 editions published between 1977 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Beginning with the events immediately following the dark days after the death of Shakyamuni and continuing over a period of 1,000 years, this dynamic tome covers a vast and complex series of events and developments in the history of Buddhism. Through a thorough examination of its early development in India, a new light is cast on little-known aspects of Buddhist history and its relevance to the understanding of Buddhism today. Topics include the formation of the Buddhist canon, the cultural exchange between the East and West, and the spirit of the Lotus Sutra
Global civilization a Buddhist-Islamic dialogue by Daisaku Ikeda ( )
19 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 1,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Global Civilization is addressed to students to Buddhism, Islam and international communication but most importantly to the general reader. It is a call for tolerance, for dialogue and ultimately for peace."--BOOK JACKET
New horizons in eastern humanism Buddhism, Confucianism and the quest for global peace by Tu Weiming ( )
10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"China now attracts global attention and headlines that are directly proportionate to its increasing economic and geopolitical power. But for several millennia the philosophy that has guided and shaped the soul of China is not modern Communism, or even new forms of capitalism, but rather Confucianism. And one of the most striking phenomena relating to China's ascendancy on the world stage is a burgeoning interest, throughout Asia and beyond, in the humanistic culture and value-system that underlie Chinese politics and finance: particularly the complex, multi-layered and sophisticated thought of Confucius as passed on in the Analects. In this stimulating and wide-ranging conversation, two leading thinkers from the Confucian and Mahayana Buddhist traditions explore the timely relevance of rejuvenated Confucian ethics to some of the most urgent issues in the modern world, including: Sino-Japanese-US relations; the transformation of society through education and dialogue; and the role of world religions in promoting human happiness and flourishing. Assessing fascinating correspondences between the Confucian and Buddhist world-views, and discussing such thinkers as Mencius, Nichiren, Zhang Zai, Spinoza, Gandhi, Max Weber, Levinas, Tang Junyi, and Habermas, the interlocutors commit themselves to a view of spirituality and religion that, without blurring cultural difference, is focused above all on the 'universal heart': on a notion of harmony between people and nature that leads finally to peace and to a hopeful future for all humanity."--P. [4] of cover
The persistence of religion comparative perspectives on modern spirituality by Harvey Gallagher Cox ( )
10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the nineteenth century, Nietzsche famously announced that God was dead. In the twentieth century, an increasing reliance on science and technology led to a widespread rejection of belief on the grounds of its irrationality. Yet for all the skepticism directed towards it, religion has not died. In fact, the opposite has occurred: it has persisted and proliferated. In this wide-ranging dialogue, two leading commentators on religion address - from their different but complementary traditions of Christianity and Buddhism - the continuing appeal of spirituality to people eager to explore fundamental questions of meaning and identity. The authors indicate that science, for all the benefits it has conferred, has limits of explanation. It may be able to show how, but not necessarily why. --BOOK JACKET
A dialogue between East and West looking to a human revolution by Ricardo Díez-Hochleitner ( )
7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How far do cultures affect the future of the planet? Can the debate on the environment and global warming be influenced by the cultures of East and West understanding each other better? In this consistently provocative dialogue, two of the most influential thinkers of recent times propose that only a 'human revolution' - a shift in the hearts and minds of individuals - can stimulate a revolution in humanity's relationship with the planet. Such a planetary revolution first requires a transformation of moral and political leadership, and an orientation towards the future rather than a preoccupat
A quest for global peace Rotblat and Ikeda on war, ethics, and the nuclear threat by Joseph Rotblat ( )
14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This series of dialogues between two leading ethical thinkers brings together the courage and humanity of Rotblat with the spiritual wisdom and global visionary outlook of Daisaku Ikeda, the leader of the world's largest and most influential lay Buddhist organisation. Together they reflect on fundamental issues of war and peace, the ethics of nuclear deterrence and the trajectory of Joseph Rotblat's career, from the Manhattan Project to the Pugwash Conferences and his Nobel Brize."--BOOK JACKET
A new humanism the university addresses of Daisaku Ikeda by Daisaku Ikeda ( )
15 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 1,252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The natural sympathy and understanding of people everywhere must be the soil in which the new humanism can thrive.' For Daisaku Ikeda, whose words these are, education has long been one of the fundamental priorities of his work and teaching. His emphasis on the intellectual legacy bequeathed to humanity by the great teachers of civilization is in this volume encapsulated by the notion of a 'new humanism': a significant residue ofwisdom that in the right circumstances may be passed on to future generations, expanding horizons, making connections between different cultures and encouraging fresh
The living Buddha : an interpretive biography by Daisaku Ikeda ( Book )
18 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in English and held by 1,247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An intimate portrayal of one of history's most important and obscure figures, the Buddha, this chronicle reveals him not as a mystic, but a warm and engaged human being that was very much the product of his turbulent times. This biographical account traces the path of Siddhartha Gautama as he walked away from the pleasure palace that had been his home and joined a growing force of wandering monks, ultimately making his way towards enlightenment beneath the bodhi tree, and spending the next 45 years sharing his insights along the banks of the Ganges. The Buddhist canon is expertly harvested to
