Summary

A Passion for Seeing gathers a rare feast of stories, impressions, and observations from a writer and artist known for his keen honesty, great heart, and passionate pursuit of the question: what does it mean to be human? Carefully chosen excerpts from many of his books and over a dozen new drawings are among the treasures included.

In A Passion for Seeing, Frederick Franck establishes himself as a prime witness to the twentieth century. Read in this anthology the best of Franck’s observations. From the onset of World War II and his work with Dr. Albert Schweitzer to private audiences with Pope John XXIII and the Dalai Lama, from the streets of New York City to the ancient temples of Japan, follow his art and thought as they illuminate our world.

“Franck… looks deep into the human heart and what he finds there is the priceless treasure of the sacred reality: a discovery and message so crucial to contemporary humanity.” — Georg Feuerstein, author of The Yoga Tradition

“Dialogues with the spiritual masters of the East show us the possibility of a universal ecumenism that is rarely experienced.”— Matthew Fox, author of Original Blessing

“For the pilgrim in each of us who would journey into Eastern or Western spiritual traditions to chart a path in this troubled time…” — Joanna Macy, author of World as Lover, World as Self

“He simply sees things most people do not…” — Harvey Cox, author of The Secular City

Frederick Franck (1910–2006) was the author of over thirty books, including The Zen of Seeing and the award-winning Pacem in Terris: A Love Story, as well as an editor of What Does It Mean to Be Human?. He was honored with the World Citizenship Award by the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, and his sculpture and artwork are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the Tokyo National Museum, and other public and private collections.
