One Response to “Conversations with Bertrand Russell (1952, 1959)”

  1. Concluding his speech, Dr. Prasad advised to be capable of erasing the intolerance of the past and to learn mutual tolerance remembering being diverse people living on this planet today are the members of one human family, and the whole world belongs to all of us. He strongly suggested, “Hence we must contribute individually, collectively, and with mutual sharing in creating a Culture of Peace for survival of all mankind and perpetual peace.” Dr. Prasad completed his speech by citing very appealing ideas on ‘erasing the past’, ‘mutual tolerance’ and ‘conciliation’ expressed by great teacher John Amos Comenius, who observed almost 300 years ago.

    Education for Tolerance and Peace

    The honest revelation of Dr. Prasad what he spoke about 25 years ago in his keynote speech on Education for Tolerance and Peace was its half and secondary truth of knowledge about our differences and practice for mutual respects towards our differences, which will make the learners tolerant. But reality is that intolerance still exists apart from so many preaching, messages, saying of good words, efforts by governmental and non-governmental organizations including United Nations and the recommendations of conferences on tolerance.

    But today he tells to all the rest half basic truth about Education for Tolerance and Peace that is knowledge about similarities in all of us that is fundamental to bridge the differences among us which enables us to live in harmony maintaining our differences.
    Therefore perpetual knowledge about our differences and our similarities should be our mission in framing the program of education for tolerance. For more details, one may refer to:
