Perspectives On The Human Condition

"Perspectives on the Human Condition" investigates aspects of the role, development, and co-evolution of some of society's most important formative and stabilizing institutions on the search for peace, as well as the influences of gender, socialization, and human nature. The particular formative and stabilizing institutions which are examined include government, business, religion, education, and the family. The intent is to make more accessible to learners the diversity of perspectives and multifaceted insights which characterize contemporary American thinking about the problem of achieving peace in the nuclear age.
