Albert Schweitzer's Ethical Vision
Reviews and Awards
"In his lifetime Albert Schweitzer was admired throughout the world as a paragon of moral excellence. President John F. Kennedy called him 'one of the transcendent moral influences of our century.' Rachel Carson dedicated Silent Spring to Dr. Schweitzer, launching the modern environmental movement?" - she called Schweitzer 'the one truly great individual our modern times have produced.' By bringing together in one volume so many of Schweitzer's most important writings on ethics, introduced by his own superb summary and assessment of Schweitzer's philosophy of reverence for life, Predrag Cicovacki has made a major contribution to the exciting global re-awakening of interest in Schweitzer that is now underway.
"Albert Schweitzer's Ethical Vision is a valuable and wide-ranging collection of readings from Albert Schweitzer, the philosopher, theologian, musician, and medical doctor who argued for the ethic of reverence for life and tried to make his life his argument. This sourcebook is highly recommended for all those who wish to address ethical issues in the world today and who seek, like Schweitzer, to advance the cause of humanity." - Marvin Meyer, Director of the Chapman University Albert Schweitzer Institute
