Cultural Heritage and Contemporary Change
Studies on the cultural sources and foundations of values
and the role of this heritage in building the future

George F. McLean, General Editor

Today there is urgent need to search out human wisdom regarding the nature and dignity of the person, the goal of the transformation of our environment, and the relation of both to the quality of personal and social life.


Such studies must draw deeply upon the cultural and religious heritages of all peoples and develop new and creative modes of cooperation, marked by trust and justice, honest dedication and mutual concern. This is the goal of the present series published by: The Council for Research in Values and Philosophy (RVP).
