Through globalization humanity is becoming more and more mutually
dependent and even united, but at the same time the multidimensional
differences and gaps between us are appearing as a challenge to this
connectedness. „No one can live only on food.“ (Lk 4, 4) are words that
clearly witness that the connective tissue of humanity can’t be only of
economical and political nature. Also the pasture the media offer to
people is too often just an instrument of the owners and not the
fulfilment of media’s proper function to cultivate and spread (capacity
for knowing) the truth. At one hand the interweaving of ideological
streams is (mis)used by new gurus for taking the possession of control. At
the other hand the representatives of established religions and value
systems are searching for formulas for a successful competition on the
global market. What are then the possibilities and ways of survival, well-being and life worth of human person in the contemporary increasingly
complex condition? This question is from various scientific aspects and
different (religious) horizons reflected upon in our book.
