Choose life : a dialogue by Arnold Toynbee( Book )

46 editions published between 1976 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 2,507 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
Search for a new humanity : a dialogue between Josef Derbolav and Daisaku Ikeda by Josef Derbolav( Book )

16 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Together, Daisaku Ikeda and Josef Derbulav explore a wide range of topics, starting with a discussion of the tension between tradition and modernization in Japan and elsewhere. They compare humanism in East and West, and Buddhism and Christianity. Focusing on the crucial topic of education, they consider the roles of ethics and religion, and zero in on concrete problems and issues: education and political authority, absenteeism, violence in schools, and juvenile delinquency
The living Buddha : an interpretive biography by Daisaku Ikeda( Book )

66 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 1,103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unlike most other major religions, Buddhism depends upon neither divine revelation nor an incarnation of God for its authenticity. Shakyamuni, the Buddha or "Enlightened One," was a man who through his own efforts attained enlightenment as to the essential nature of existence."--Back cover

The flower of Chinese Buddhism by Daisaku Ikeda( Book )

16 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with the introduction of the religion into China, this chronicle depicts the evolution of Buddhism. The career and achievements of the great Kumarajiva are investigated, exploring the famed philosophical treatises that form the core of East Asian Buddhist literature. Providing a useful and accessible introduction to the influential Tien-t'ai school of Buddhism in Japan as well as the teachings of the 13th-century monk Nichiren, this examination places special emphasis on the faith of the Lotus Sutra and the major works of masters such as Hui-su, Chih-i, and Chanjan. From the early tr

Global civilization : a Buddhist-Islamic dialogue by Daisaku Ikeda( Book )

27 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and French and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A quest for global peace : Rotblat and Ikeda on war, ethics, and the nuclear threat by Joseph Rotblat( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 212 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."--Jacket
New horizons in eastern humanism : Buddhism, Confucianism and the quest for global peace by Weiming Tu( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 171 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."--Page 4 of cover
The persistence of religion : comparative perspectives on modern spirituality by Harvey Cox( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 166 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."--Jacket
A passage to peace : global solutions from East and West by Nur Yalman( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The seas do not separate us; rather, they bring us closer together.' Daisaku Ikeda's opening words to this consistently wide-ranging dialogue set the scene for what follows. For the overarching theme of the book is that of the insights and meeting of minds that follow interaction between peoples who might be geographically distant but who nevertheless share much in common." "Reflecting on his memories of standing on the shores of the Bosphorus, gazing at the almost adjacent coastlines of Europe and Asia, Ikeda explores the symbol of diversity represented by the cosmopolitan city of Istanbul. The city in which his interlocutor, distinguished social anthropologist Nur Yalman, grew up, remains an icon of ethnic plurality. The boundary between Eastern and Western cultures, it is also the point at which many different civilizations have encountered one another and melded. This reflection leads the authors towards lively exploration of the custom and cultural mores shared by Japan and Turkey: two countries which historically stand at opposite ends of the great trading route that was the Silk Road, but which have longstanding traditions of reciprocity and friendship."--Jacket
A dialogue between East and West : looking to a human revolution by Ricardo Díez-Hochleitner( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 140 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 provocative and wide-ranging dialogue, two of the most influential thinkers of recent times propose that only a 'human revolution' - a fundamental 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 a hopeful orientation towards the children
