Reconstituting the Human Community. A Report of Inquiries Concerning Cultural Relations for the Future.
Braisted, Paul J., Ed.; And Others
The results, convictions, and recommendations of a colloquium designed to study the improvement of present and future cultural relations are presented. Study groups from Japan, Africa, the Middle East, India, Southeast Asia, and the United States participated in the conference. Chapter one analyzes the context of cultural relations, the instability of international life, the scope of cultural relations, and the importance of cultural diversity. Chapter two examines the role of Africa and Asia in cultural relations, including guidelines for the future and suggestions for overcoming cultural obstacles. Chapter three analyzes man's search for values and meaning in life, including the implication of value differentials and the contribution of youth to the search. Chapter four examines the local capabilities of developing countries in cultural relations and makes recommendations for scientific, technological, educational, and humanitarian exchanges. Chapter five provides ten suggestions for meeting the challenge of reconstituting the human community along more humane lines. (Author/DE)
