Oliver Reiser - "The Battle of Man"

“Of course, the multiplication and enlargement of our bodies of knowledge intensify the need for finding integrating principles. And there’s the rub! Knowledge in the sense in which contemporary (1961) man understands is not wisdom. Recently the president of a great corporation (Thomas Watson, IBM) stated that ‘there never has been a time when more information was available to more people than at the beginning of this promising decade.’ This, we all know, is entirely correct as a statement of fact. But in fairness to the total situation one must add that there never has been a time when great groups of individuals have been so confused by the torrents of information that are deluging the human scene.” Oliver Reiser, Cosmic Humanism page 1 “The Battle of Man - Crises Unlimited”
