The Way of Youth
Verlag: Eternal Ganges
The commentary format of this book lends itself to Ikeda’s straightforward approach in responding to the concerns of young adults. The author draws on people and events in history as well as philosophical inquiry to discuss human nature and human potential in accessible, relevant terms.
“I recently broke up with someone, and I am really depressed.” “The more I study history, the more I find out what I’ve been taught isn’t true.” “How can I tell who my real friends are?” “Sometimes I get confused between what other people want for me and what I want for myself.” – These are some of the concerns Ikeda addresses, providing an optimistic yet grounded view of life.
