Cultural Disarmament: The Way to Peace

In this important and timely book, philosopher and theologian Raimon Panikkar deals with the crucial issues of our time—war, religion, and ecology—as he redefines true peace and offers a way to achieve it in the world. Peace, he argues, requires more than nuclear, military, or economic disarmament. Peace can be obtained only by a cultural disarmament, which will require that absolution be abandoned for true reconciliation through ongoing intercultural dialogues.
