BE­YOND EXTREMISM, HA­TRED, AND VI­O­LENCE

The New York Review of Books - - Galleries And Museums -

To­ward a More Peace­ful World

by R. E. Markham

What can be done to min­i­mize the du­al­is­tic “you’re wrong/I’m right” at­ti­tudes of ex­trem­ists on the left and the right as they seek to pre­serve their points of view? The so­lu­tion is not some new re­li­gious or po­lit­i­cal ide­ol­ogy. In­stead, these at­ti­tudes can be un­der­mined by ac­cess­ing a deep, mys­te­ri­ous, and in­de­fin­able di­men­sion of re­al­ity that tran­scends con­ven­tional points of view.

“Ac­knowl­edge­ment of this deeper di­men­sion re­veals our hubris and fal­li­bil­ity, and al­lows us to con­nect more au­then­ti­cally with oth­ers.” — IndieRe­view

“Plenty of sub­stance in these pages. A wide-rang­ing, thought pro­vok­ing look at faith and the na­ture of re­al­ity.” — Kirkus Re­view.
