MULTILINGUAL DICTIONARY FOR MULTIFAITH AND MULTICULTURAL MEDIATION, PEACE AND GLOBAL PHILOSOPHY

ByThomas Daffern

The MULTILINGUAL DICTIONARY FOR MULTIFAITH AND MULTICULTURAL MEDIATION, PEACE AND GLOBAL PHILOSOPHY is a research tool for all scholars and students and philosophers interested in languages and philology. It is the first ever published attempt to compile a comparative philosophical dictionary of terms for absolute concepts, which vary from culture to culture and religion to religion, of philosophically charged words such as God, Being, virtue, love, truth, beauty, power, existence, peace, knowledge, wisdom, mind, consciousness, magic, holy, spirit etc. It has a specific irenic purpose as a tool of inter-cultural understanding and reconciliation, on the propoposition that through studying one another's words and concepts and ideas in their own vocabularies, rival spiritual and ideological systems might replace intellectual hostility and feuding with study, dialogue and mutual understanding.
