Description

Psychiatrist Jerome Frank, of Johns Hopkins University, notes that, historically, more people have died during wars from famine and disease than from weapons, but recent technological developments have finally reversed that trend. He argues that the human race, though the most adaptable of all animal species, appears unable to change swiftly enough to adapt to this new phase of our culture, which clearly requires a world without war. Followed by discussion with Robert M. Hutchins. Nov. 1966.
