About this title

Synopsis:

Toward Peace establishes the notion that truth in human activity is essential for any meaningful advancement toward peace, but it admits that humanity tends to wander between knowledge and ignorance, between a beneficent will and a concupiscent will. The manuscript explores laissez-faireism and fundamentalism, individualism and collectivism, economics, education, and government from philosophical, scientific, and religious points of view. This is accomplished by interweaving philosophical ideas expressed by Plato and Aristotle, with aphorisms expressed by ancient Indian and Chinese wise men, with Judaic and Christian scriptures, and with contemporary economic data and in vogue political notions.

About the Author:

Lyle Strathman was born in Kansas in 1935, during the decade of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. After the Second World War and during the onset of the Cold War, he graduated from college with a double major-liberal arts and electrical engineering. He worked in an American industry, was married, and raised five children while observing a transition in economic emphasis from the production of wealth to the consumption of wealth, coupled with a regression in moral and ethical standards. In these latter social environs, he mentally observed "something is wrong" and began an intellectual inquiry into what causes and effects might lead toward peace. This manuscript, Toward Peace, is the result of that inquiry.
