I’m pleased to present you with the July-August 2017 issue of the Journal of Global Issues & Solutions.
This issue’s Page One Feature Paper is in the realm of Materialism versus Spiritualism. “How Will Future Historians Judge the End of the 20th Century?,” by Dr. Julio A. Gonzalo of the Escuela Politécnica Superior, Universidad San Pablo CEU, Montepríncipe in Madrid, Spain, and the Departamento de Física de Materiales of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, presents a review of the materialistic versus spiritual influences of the twentieth century. Dr. Gonzalo points out that “In a Christian perspective, history will be, at the end, on the side of God. It is increasingly evident however that the Christian foundations of Western Civilization are already under attack since the middle of the Eighteenth Century, specially so in Europe and America since the last third of the Twentieth Century.” He very accurately states that “To recover freedom in America, Europe and the World at large, relativistic “multiculturalism” must be defeated: There is no other way out.” This is a particularly excellent essay, and one very pertinent to the challenges we in Europe and North America currently face.
On a somewhat similar topic, our following paper moves on to the field of Christianity: Scientific Research, as Dr. Manuel Alfonseca of the Escuela Politécnica Superior, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, in Madrid, Spain, presents his paper “The Future of Science in the 21st Century.” Dr. Alfonseca avers that “At the end of the nineteenth century, atheist or agnostic thinkers relied on Darwin’s theories to build philosophical schools that combined evolution with the eighteenth-century idea of progress to assert that the history of life and man showed an indefinite progress that will continue indefinitely into the future.” The author says of Christianity, “This ability to discover and understand the laws of the universe through experimentation, recognized and fostered by the Medieval Church, has unleashed the scientific revolution which still continues. No other civilization (not even the Arabs and the Chinese) has witnessed so long a period of scientific development…” in the strong relation between spirituality and the advancement of science, culture and civilization.
Following, Dr. Miloš Dokulil, Professor of Philosophy, of Brno, Czech Republic, brings us his paper in the area of Culture: Central Europe: “An Overview of the Past 150 Years: From a Central European Perspective.” Approximately one-half of the past 150 years saw Central Europe as a socialist-communist region. Dr. Dokulil points out that “…the capitalist neighborhood could go on and might produce first-class products, even when not always coming first within the mutual competition on the track. (Let us not forget the legendary Sputnik 1 of 1957. In this way and at that time, a very visible socialist triumph of exactly 60 years ago!)…” and provides an inside view of the contrasts as Central Europe transitioned over the recent decades, along with a review of the decades preceding.
This issue concludes with Part VII of a special presentation in the topic area of Education: Life & Consciousness, by Naturalistic Philosopher Iain Mr. Iain Kirkaldy-Willis of Spain’s Canary Islands; “The Nature of Thought” is an on-going series of visual presentations. The author explains that “the use of image/text presentations has been chosen as a stimulating, provocative and inspiring format for consciousness raising. It is an approach that has evolved over the years from a wide variety of applications – as a gardener in Finland, piecing together a holistic agricultural approach to an adult educational community’s land and then making that part of that Folk High School’s curriculum – in use with villagers in the foothills of N. India, as a tool for awareness, healing and empowerment, in the face of socio-environmental collapse – in the designing of courses to meet adult needs for healing and change in the face of different kinds of personal crisis.” Excellent graphics and bright imagery vividly highlight this fascinating visual presentation.
