Book Summary of Education For A Global Society : Inter-faith Dimensions
The twentieth Century was a century of paradoxes characterised by great scientific discoveries coupled with colossus human destruction. When the information and communication technology brought world closer to one another into a global village, the competitive faiths pulled them apart from each other. Inter-faith has never been such a crying concern than ever before.
The Temple of Understanding undertook to bring together scholars on one platform to discuss, debate and disseminate inter-faith messages for education for a global society and hence this volume which puts together selected 18 papers.
This is the first Indian book on the subject. It brings together a wide range of well considered views in different aspects of education focusing on the global context from context from interfaith strand. Hope that this book will be well received by the alert audience world over. Table of Contents :
