Tomorrow's Children (Riane Eisler)

Thinking Allowed with Jeffrey Mishlove
S1:Ep1824 mins2001Guest: Riane Eisler

In her book, Tomorrow’s Children, Riane Eisler says that we have structured our society in a way that gives our children a misguided perspective on human nature. She believes we are giving them a very negative and distorted picture of human possibility.

Eisler discusses the need for a more complete, more balanced and more hopeful picture of our history, and she urges our schools to amend the structure, the environment and the lessons that they are teaching. A school of thought based on fascinating stories of human triumph and success paints a far more positive picture of humanity and human potential than lessons on war and domination.
