Gwe: Young Man of New Guinea, a novel against racism
GWE: YOUNG MAN OF NEW GUINEA, a novel against racism
by Arnold Perey, PhD, anthropologist
In this book you will take a trip to the heart of Papua New Guinea, to the mountains, peaceful and turbulent, where Gwe lives. We invite you to a new understanding of the human self, as you meet Gwe, his relations, his enemies, and Alan, the anthropologist who lived with them. Aesthetic Realism, the philosophy founded by the great poet and educator Eli Siegel, is that understanding. It explains: There is a fight in every person between respect for the world and contempt for it.
