Wisdom for
Daily Living

December 2, 2015

When we ask ourselves what are the most crucial issues facing humankind in the 21st century, it is clear that a central challenge will be to establish on a global scale a robust philosophy of reverence for life, a philosophy that is consistently and clearly focused on the human being.
