Mario Betti

Mario Betti was born in Lucca, Italy in 1942.  As a young man, he loved the decathlon and  wanted to learn ten languages so as to understand people. Teaching philosophy at Alanus University in Germany, he enabled  students explore the twelve world views. The burning question which led to writing his book Twelve Ways of Seeing the World was, ‘How to develop ways of understanding every person, towards a ‘Whitsun’ of humanity where all languages will be understood in a community of inquirers.’ He says ‘This book is needed because humanity is getting more and more one-sided.’
