We are Human (Siamo Umani, Piemme editions), a dialogue between Felix Unger , a world-renowned cardiologist who in 1986 made the first artificial heart transplant in Europe, and Daisaku Ikeda, philosopher and Buddhist teacher

At a time when we are witnessing the expansion of individualism and a devaluation of human life, with the consequent growth of the most terrible forms of violence, this dialogue proposes a current confrontation on the dangers of the loss of humanity . Religion can become the bearer of common values ​​such as tolerance and compassion.  Tolerance arises from the exchange with others and presupposes a civil point of view. It is an example of human arithmetic in which the sum of one plus one does not make two, but three – says doctor Felix Unger in the volume – When an opinion enters into a relationship with another opinion, a third, starting point is born of new debates ”.

FELIX UNGER , born in 1946, is an Austrian doctor and academic. Cardiologist of international renown, he is president and co-founder of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, which has 1,500 members including 30 Nobel Prize winners, and president of Alma Mater Europaea, based in Salzburg and various branches in Europe, including one in Italy.

DAISAKU IKEDA , born in 1928 in Tokyo, is a Japanese Buddhist author, teacher and philosopher, considered one of the most important modern day Buddhist spiritual figures, he is president of the Soka Gakkai International.
