The Future of Humanity – J krishnamurti & David Bohm
In these dialogues Krishnamurti and physicist David Bohm explore the prospects for the continued existence of our world given our immense capacity of self-destruction.
They examine such age-old problems as the trap of social conditioning, the relationship of self and community, and the nature of consciousness. Beginning with the question ‘What is the future of humanity?’ they point out that while modern technology is often blamed for having created immense havoc, the root problem-the destructive human tendencies-has existed for all of recorded time. They assert that the individual holds the key to averting disaster.
Krishnamurti proposes no answers, Rather, he reveals through these dialogues how individuals can begin to understand their own thinking about the fundamental questions of human existence.
