Description ENDS AND MEANS IN CONFLICT 43 science of psychology. We call people to roles demanding pastoral counseling without equipping them in any way with the most rudimen tary information. So much truth is here for one seeking peace: between spouses, between friends, between enemies, between nations, within the cosmos of our own soul. We have a grave responsibility here in primary and secondary education and in the universities as well. Surely fundamental education should be accomplished in psychology by anyone leaving each of these levels of learning. I propose that we create at the University of Utah a Center for Peace Studies. Here again, the peace I am speaking of is not simply the absence of war, but rather the sense of wholeness of "shalom." The psychology of violence and the psychology of peace would be central to such a center. The sociology of peace is also fundamental. How do we live in a community without aggressing each other's individuality? How do we foster a community without stifling individuality, promote cooperation without dulling creativity and initiative? Such a center might study the causes of violence and war and the alternatives of peaceful resolution of disputes: fact-finding and negotiation, mediation and arbitration, diplomacy and judicial resolution would be examined. But such a center should not be limited to the international world. Dialogue within our own community, between leaders and members of different religious traditions would be fostered, as would dialogue between racial groups and between men and women as well. F.

There is saving power in mankind, but there is also the hidden will to self-destruction. It depends on every one of us which side will prevail. There is no 73 Proverbs 23:7. 74 T.
