Description

The present global situation permits neither an isolation of the eastern and western values, nor the continuing military or economic domination of the West over the East. This situation has been brought about primarily by developments in science and technology, which are inevitably leading to the emergence of a planetary culture.

If the intellectuals, both of the East and of the West, do not endeavour to forge a right synthesis of science and spirituality, of the Occident and the Orient, of modernity and tradition, this worldwide culture will be based on a very low common denominator, amounting essentially to a lack of ethical standards and of spiritual values. We can hardly overestimate the difficulty of communication across cultures and disciplines, and also the urgent necessity for some understanding across these boundaries to be reached.

We hope that this book can be of some help in the development of such an understanding.
