He is the author of more than 80 books on Buddhist themes, and received the United Nations Peace Award in 1983. As a graduate student and a student of Buddhism myself, I found this book, "A New Humanism: The University Addresses of Daisaku Ikeda" to be an excellent collection of Mr. Ikeda's trademark profound insights.

""The natural sympathy and understanding of people everywhere must be the soil in which the new humanism can thrive."" For Daisaku Ikeda, whose words these are, education has long been one of the fundamental priorities of his work and teaching. And his emphasis on the intellectual legacy bequeathed to humanity by the great teachers of civilization is in this volume encapsulated by the notion of a ""new humanism"": a significant residue of wisdom that in the right circumstances may be passed on to future generations, expanding horizons, making connnctions between different cultures and encouraging fresh insights and new discoveries across the globe. These circumstances are perhaps most fully realized in the context of universities. And in promoting his core values of education and peace, the author has delivered speeches and lectures at more than twenty-five academies, colleges and research institutes worldwide. This stimulating collection, which includes the author's most recent lectures, ranges widely across topics as diverse as art, religion, culture and time, and draws creatively on the sages of ancient India, China and Japan as well as on visionary thinkers from every nation, including Tolstoy, Victor Hugo and Gandhi.

As a graduate student and a student of Buddhism myself, I found this book, "A New Humanism: The University Addresses of Daisaku Ikeda" to be an excellent collection of Mr. Ikeda's trademark profound insights. As other authentic reviewers have mentioned, you certainly don't need to be a university student to gain a lot from this book.
The book "A New Humanism" is a collection of addresses given at renowned institutions of higher learning around the world by Dr. Daisaku Ikeda, president of the Soka Gakkai International. I've heard many addresses at some of the finest universities in the world in my life, but none as profound and inspiring as these! Perhaps I am biased, since my focus of study in higher learning has always been Buddhism and Nichiren Buddhism in particular, but I sure wish someone gave these kind of addresses at my university!
"A New Humanism," like all the books I've read by Dr. Ikeda, is filled with deep insights from the perspective of Nichiren Buddhism regarding our common destiny as one human family, the future of our planet, building a universal respect for life, and the path to a lasting peace.
I recommend this book to all university students as well as anyone intersted in the study of Buddhism (in college or not!) and to anyone interested in learning more about the life-philosophy of Nichiren and the Soka Gakkai International, the largest Buddhist organization in the world (of which Daisaku Ikeda, the author, is the current president).

being a part of SGI was a big mistake for my life.

I agree with another reviewer that you certainly don't need to be a university student to gain much from this book - a collection of addresses given by Soka Gakkai International president Daisaku Ikeda at renowned institutions of higher learning throughout the world.
"A New Humanism" has deep insight into our shared humanity and the path to universal respect for life, thereby creating a genuine peace. I found this section of books by Daisaku Ikeda after hearing an interview with Tina Turner, a practitioner of the Buddhist school led by Daisaku Ikeda, author of A New Humanism.
It's obvious from the wisdom expounded in these addresses why so many top universities and institutions around the world have bestowed upon Mr. Ikeda their highest honors. As his writings and addresses demonstrate, he is truly a world-class gentleman and scholar.

I first found this book as a result of Larry King Live interview with Tina Turner, a devout practitioner of the Buddhist school led by Daisaku Ikeda, author of A New Humanism.
I was so impressed with the wisdom, courage and compassion of Mr. Ikeda's university addresses in A New Humanism that I bought several more of his books and have enjoyed each one more than the previous! It's easy to see from this book why so many prominent universities around the world have bestowed upon Daisaku Ikeda their highest awards and honorary doctorates. He is truly a world-class gentleman and scholar.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the practical applications of ancient Buddhist principles in everyday, modern life.
You certainly don't need to be a university student to gain much from this gem - a collection of addresses given at renowned institutions of higher learning throughout the world by Dr. Daisaku Ikeda, president of the Soka Gakkai International. I sure wish someone had given these kind of addresses to my university when I was a student.
"A New Humanism" is filled with deep insight into our shared humanity, our future as a planet and the road to universal respect for life, the road to a genuine peace.
