About the books:
“Peace Peace Perseus” – young people today face challenges that require them to maintain stability and resilience and to have proper internal control.The path of a peace fighter is an ancient way of applying wisdom studies and of giving preference to substance over visibility and property. To a new and better world in which each person will find his place, in which the brotherhood and the welfare of the people will take place, so that one must learn to believe in himself and progress with a gradual discovery of his potential. Today, as in the past, we are ready to play the role, but we still need an imitation model Hib as Perseus, a warrior of peace, to be inspired and to foster internal security.
“After the fall, history goes on …” – this book describes the process of decay of Western civilization; Moral, intellectual and spiritual decline. Although we can not prevent this, the book does not display a fury, but rather outlines the possibility of reaching a renewed cultural flowering. “We defend an idea by applying it” – so Fernando Schwarz summarizes classical philosophers’ message, such as Socrates, Confucius, Buddha and Plato, and Pierre Pauline’s solution in this book. Philosophy is the human shield against violence and extremism of any kind. The philosopher’s weapon is awakening consciousness. The seeds that are stored today in the time capsule can form the basis for a new beginning. What do we want to send into the future as a call for a new and better world?
