This publication originated from a project with the same name pursued by the Chair of Philosophy at the University of Bamberg in collaboration with the Hanns Seidel Foundation. The aim of the project is to elucidate by the means of philosophical reflection the spiritual and religious foundations which have formed cultures till today. Thereby the perception of one’s own identity as well as of the other may be promoted, thus encouraging mutual appreciation and innovative intercultural cooperation as basis for a humanely creative peace.
The present volume establishes an exchange of ideas between representatives of different fields and world religions. A philosophical exposition (H Beck) explains the value of the treatises on the general problem of intercultural encounter and world peace and of the contributions by specific regional cultures (Europe-Africa-Asia- Latin- America) to the “dialogue of the world cultures.
