About the Author
Mario Betti is a former philosophy professor. The burning question which led to writing this book was, "How to develop ways of understanding every person, towards a ‘Whitsun’ of humanity where all languages will be understood in a community of inquirers." He says "This book is needed because humanity is getting more and more one-sided."
