WISDOM – TRUST – HUMOR Diálogos sobre la Argentina y el fin del milenio” was an unavoidable landmark: It brought together Marcos Aguinis, the writer, and Father Justo Laguna, Bishop of Morón; two relevant and very different opinion-makers. With agreements and disagreements on the topics of concern for the country, their origins and projection at the doorstep of the third millenium, they built the foundations for a dialogue that seduced critics and public immediately. Now, with “Nuevos Diálogos”, the repertoire of key issues is widened.
When they met for the first time, the author and the man of the Church never imagined the flow of passionate exchange of ideas that would arise between them, on the basis of the humanism they share. In this second round of encounters, the free dialogue is again the medium for tackling love, friendship, solitude, old age, parent-children relationships, human pains, justice, impunity, power, unemployment, discrimination, anti-Semitism, faith, the gift of life, abortion, and death penalty, among other issues.
If “Diálogos sobre la Argentina y el fin del milenio” turned out to be a must-read book, this series of “Nuevos Diálogos” by Aguinis and Laguna is even more necessary, for it proves again that beyond differences in origins or beliefs, human beings may converse with simplicity and intelligence about the transcendental topics of their times.
