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.
Raimon Panikkar has lived and studied in Spain, Germany, Italy, India and the United States. He was ordained as a Catholic priest and is Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. After teaching Sanskrit in Madrid, philosophy in Rome, indology in Bangalore, and comparative religion at Harvard and in California, he now lives in the mountains of Catalunya. He has written some forty books and more than nine hundred articles.
