Forms of Conflict and Rivalries in Renaissance Europe:
In Either/Or, using the voices of two characters - the aesthetic young man of part one, called simply ´A´, and the ethical Judge Vilhelm of the second section - Kierkegaard reflects upon the search for a meaningful existence, contemplating subjects as diverse as Mozart, drama, boredom, and, in the famous Seducer´s Diary, the cynical seduction and ultimate rejection of a young, beautiful woman. A masterpiece of duality, Either/Or is a brilliant exploration of the conflict between the aesthetic and the ethical - both meditating ironically and seductively upon Epicurean pleasures, and eloquently expounding the noble virtues of a morally upstanding life.

The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam:A Way to Ethnic Conflicts in the Nile River Basin? Framework for Ethnic Conflicts Settlement Blain Felizitas Valentin
This book explores how the Renaissance entailed a global exchange of goods, skills and ideas between East and West. In chapters ranging from Ottoman history to Venetian publishing, from portraits of St George to Arab philosophy, from cannibalism to diplomacy, the authors interrogate what all too often may seem to be settled certainties, such as the difference between East and West, the invariable conflict between Islam and Christianity, and the rebirth of European civilization from roots in classical Greece and Imperial Rome.
