After some musings, the answer to the title's question is “yes.”; Piechowski bases his argument on Dabrowski's theory of levels of emotional development, Maslow's concept of “self‐actualization,”; and Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences. Within this frame he takes up three cases: Etty Hillesum, the Dutch woman whose inner growth, recorded in her diary, led her finally to volunteer for deportation by the Nazis, and to go off singing; a woman named Ashley, a fiercely devoted teacher who kept a diary recording her inner struggle for purification; and a woman known as “Peace Pilgrim”; who covered 25,000 miles on foot, telling peace along the way. The article concludes on the note that inner peace is the foundation of world peace.
