Erich Fromm - words of sense and reason in a senseless and unreasonable world.


This is one of a series of lecture sociologist, philosopher and peace activist Erich Fromm delivered in the early 1970's. This lecture is titled "How Can Conflicts Be Resolved Without War".

Of course, this was during the Cold War and Vietnam period when war and it's threat were prevalent everywhere.

But the sentiments and words are as apropos now as they were forty years ago. Maybe more so.

For the next hour, you get to decide.

Can you help us out?
