Indian Voices on World Order. The Whole Earth Papers, Vol. 1, No. 5, Winter, 1978.
Global Education Associates, East Orange, NJ.
This special issue of the Whole Earth Papers contains a series of articles expressing views about world order from the perspective of India. The first three articles discuss a world view of non-duality stressing the unity of the universe; the need to establish universal social justice in a world whose limited resources are unjustly divided; and the possibility of considering alternative world models based on minimization of collective violence and maximization of social and economic well-being. Another article suggests a recreation of modern culture by incorporating aspects of eastern cultures into the predominant western culture which permeates the world. Technology and economic priorities should be tempered by recognition of the worth of the individual. Another article discusses the world's developing consciousness about the roles of technology, power, and knowledge in influencing the future. Also included are excerpts from the writings of Indian philosophers and politicians such as Ghandi and Nehru, and reviews of books by Indian authors on the topics of world order and the future. (AV)
