The awareness that Western civilization and Western style progress had imposed economic programs which destroyed nature and impoverished people compelled Scott Estham to seek truth looking at the East, at its indigenous people and their Earth widsdom. His mentors Raimon Panikkar, Ezra Pound and Buckminster Fuller contributed great intellectual and spiritual insights which deepened his convictions about the Goodness of Life. The awareness that “Reality coheres in spite of the carnage of the 20th century contextualized his life’s work and interests in interdisciplinary and cross-cultural studies.
