Collision of Cultures: [Opportunities and Limits of Intercultural Dialogue between Globalization and Cultural Identity-in the traditions of Western and Non-Western thought.]
Collision of Cultures: [Opportunities and Limits of Intercultural Dialogue between Globalization and Cultural Identity-in the traditions of Western and Non-Western thought.]
Description
Preface:

A worldwide discussion has broken out, considering whether the conflicts of the recent time could be founded on the differences among world cultures.

The following points are to be discussed with proper reasoning:-

(a) Is the collision of the Western (American-European, Jewish-Christian) Culture and those of Asia the inevitable perspective which must result in consequence of technical globalization and progressive interdependence upon simultaneous rediscovery of culture-specific identities and characteristics within the scope of the Western and variants Asian traditions, religions, philosophies and cultures in the world of the 21st Century?

(b) What strategies for avoiding this can be gleaned from discussions above all between Western and Eastern Cultures and philosophical traditions?

(c) What is the out look on the applicability of this philosophical dialogue to the world of politics, and/or its potential power in Western and Eastern nations to enable and promote a peaceful encounter of Eastern and Western cultures as well as a radical instrumentalization of the differences between Western and Non-Western/Eastern traditions and characteristics?

For this purpose, I prepared my post-doctoral thesis entitled, "Collision of Cultures" [opportunities and limits of Intercultural Dialogue between Globalization and Cultural Identity in the traditions of Western and Non-Western thought.] And, I sent my thesis for evaluation, in 1999, to The Hermann and Marianne Straniak Foundation, in Sarnen/ow, Switzerland. In 1999, the certificate in this regard was obtained by me, from Dr. Herwig Liebscher, President of the Foundation, P. O. Box-13, A-5027, Salzburg, Austria.

Now, I am publishing my post-doctoral thesis, "Collision of Cultures", in the form of a book.

Hope, this book will be useful to both intellectuals and common people alike.

The level of customer service provided by you was amazing ! No other Indian Web services, except very few, are giving customers this kind of detailed attention. Thanks Exotic India, I got the book yesterday.

The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
