Conference "The East and the West"


Conference by Diego Sánchez Meca, Doctor in Philosophy by the University Complutense of Madrid, Bachelor of Arts in Psychology by the same university and professor of Philosophy at the Universidad Nacional a Distancia, UNED.
These mutual interrelations have modified the traditional and outdated conflict between East and West, opening new doors to intercultural dialogue, based on true study and comprehension of these two realities. The exchange is such that some authors foresee an eventual end to the duel between the East and the West, which will give way to tolerance and to an integrating dynamic in the global community.
With this conference, Fundación Sophia wants to be an active participant in this step forward among cultures, helping in the ambitious but necessary task of eliminating the boundaries that separate us, and to collaborate in this task of creating a new space for universal wisdom.
