Взгляд психолога на ядерную войну: на ее угрозу и возможное предотвращение
In an article published 40 years ago, K. Rogers formulates his a person-centered approach to overcoming the threat of a global nuclear war. By scaling up their discoveries made originally in the field interpersonal communications, on the spheres of intergroup and interethnic communication, the author shows the effectiveness of intermediary psychologists (facilitators) in reducing the level of confrontation and tension, strengthening moments of peaceful interaction between representatives of the warring parties. The article is kind of program of the Peace Project (Peace Project), the practical implementation of which K. Rogers devoted the last fifteen years of his life. The peacekeeping activity of C. Rogers in Northern Ireland, Brazil, Western and Eastern Europe, South Africa, Central America, Soviet Union is a clear demonstration of the reality and effectiveness of his Peace Project. And if in this phrase in English we are talking about the world, as the opposite of war, then the dual understanding of the Russian word "peace" allows us to emphasize the idea of K. Rogers about such a world order, in which all communications will be built on person-centered grounds. The cornerstone of the new world order is humanity - was rejected by the builders of the modern world order and lay in vain four decades. As a result, we are all closer to disaster. nuclear self-destruction. In his article, K. Rogers primarily addresses his nation, but it is important to keep in mind that the desire to communicate and understand each other should come from all parties that can be involved in the conflict or already involved in it. Maybe it's time is it time to return to our nature, to humanity, and start building a new world order on this cornerstone?
