Perhaps one of the most interesting figures of the twentieth century was that of Albert Schweitzer, born in Germany in 1875 and died in Gabon (Africa) in 1965.

  1. Albert Schweitzer was a theologian, musician (Bach), medical... A truly illustrated man
  2. He was Christian Protestant
  3. In 1952 received the Nobel Peace Prize

Albert Schweitzer and his wife lived almost all of his life in Gabon (Lambaréné), working in a hospital created and financed by him.

“I do not care whether or not an animal can reason. I just know he is capable of suffering, and therefore I consider my fellow man” Albert Schweitzer

The following words of Albert Schweitzer belong to the chapter twenty-six of his book “The Philosophy of Civilization” and “The Ethics of Reverence for Life” in the winter edition (1936) of Christianity, published on its website.

“I am a life, which wills to live... There is in it a yearning to arrive at unity with itself, to become universal.

Ethics consist in experiencing compulsion to show to all will-to-live the same reverence as I do to my own. A man is truly ethical only when he obeys the compulsion to help all life which he can assist, and shrinks from injuring anything that lives...

In this sense reverence for life is an absolute ethic.

Such an ethic does not abolish for man all ethical conflicts but compels him to decide for himself in each case how far he can remain ethical and how far he must submit himself to the necessity for destruction of and injury to life” Albert Schweitzer

As we can see this beautiful reflection is a true statement of Ahimsa of the Non-Violence, so common in Hinduism, Zoroastrianism or Buddhism, even he extends his vision to animals and plants, as the Jain.

His Foundation awards the Prizes Albert Schweitzer Humanitarianism, in 1986 was awarded Desmond Tutu.
