    A Meeting of Two Great Minds

    America's preeminent scientist and peace activist Linus Pauling (1901-94) and Daisaku Ikeda have worked for decades in the cause of disarmament, international understanding, and lasting peace. Both are absolute pacifists. A timely publication at a critical juncture in world affairs, this book is the product of their discussions held at Soka University, Los Angeles, in 1987. While the dialogue spells out their efforts and prescriptions for dealing with the current peace issues, it also relates Pauling's recollections of his childhood, his development as a scientist, and many episodes about his life and the people he has known--Albert Einstein and Robert Oppenheimer among them. This volume gives a broad and personal glimpse of Pauling, recipient of two unshared Nobel Prizes (1954 for chemistry and 1962 for peace). Dr. Pauling first met Mr. Ikeda in Los Angeles in 1987, then again in 1990 and twice in 1993, before his death in 1994. His son, Linus Pauling, Jr., later recollected his father's pride in their joint publication, as follows: 'My father met President Ikeda in his later days and mentioned him to me on many occasions, but I was particularly struck by the fact that in my father's office, at the time I started working there, which was in late 1991, there was a stack of books: the book on peace published by President Ikeda and my father, A Lifelong Quest for Peace. I noticed that my father tended to pass out a copy of this book to distinguished visitors who came to see him, and I think that he had considerable pride in participating with President Ikeda on this book. President Ikeda and my father were complementary in many ways.... My father, coming from his scientific background that dealt with facts and statistics, and President Ikeda with his philosophical training dealing with concepts, managed to come together, bringing these two viewpoints to a mutual understanding, an understanding that lay within each of them.' A Lifelong Quest for Peace, gives the reader an opportunity to become acquainted with Dr. Pauling, who was always active and vocal in his advocacy of responsible and humane progress in science and a superb role model for today's young people, on whose shoulders the problems of the twenty-first century rest.
