New Directions for Catholic Social and Political Research Humanity vs. Hyper-Modernity by Guido Giacomo Preparata

New Directions for Catholic Social and Political Research Humanity vs. Hyper-Modernity


New Directions for Catholic Social and Political Research Humanity vs. Hyper-Modernity by Guido Giacomo Preparata

This book offers scholars who ground their research in compassion and pacifism a new framework for the socio-political analysis of current global events. By tackling a broad range of critical themes in various disciplines, the essays compose a critical narrative of the ways in which power and violence shape society, culture, and belief. In addition to the contemporary dynamics of international economics, political murder, and the rhetorical antagonism between Christianity and Islam, the book addresses cultural strife in the West, the societal effects of neoconservative hegemony in the United States and the world, and the overall question of religious credence in connection with political action. All such topics are discussed with a view toward providing solutions and policies that are informed by a comprehensive desire to resist violence and war, on the one hand, and to foment cohesion and harmony at the community level, on the other.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
