This book is an outcome of the conversation that
occurred during the five days of intense discussion
at two symposia initiated by the “New Humanism
The struggle for a more humane society is both
local and universal, and increasingly these are
connected in our time. So while the conversation
focused specifically on South Africa, the discussion
was neither parochial nor insular in its scope and
character. Hopefully, then, people beyond South
Africa will find the contents of this book of value
for them in terms of their own contexts.
