Klappentext

"Candles in the Dark" is an international compendium of essays that share a sense of the importance of introducing ethical and spiritual concepts and values into the public discourse on progress and globalization issues. They offer a new approach to international relations and public policy that esteems the human spirit and dignity as central values in decision making; seek links between self interest and the common good; and introduce, in a practical way, philosophical, spiritual and cultural perspectives in the political discourse on global political and socioeconomic problems.
