The Mind of Theodore Roszak
Dave Collamer

Presentation by Dave Collamer about Theodore Roszak who was a history professor at California State University and a social critic for over 40 years. Roszak’s view is that people in developed countries have bought into the techno-industrial scheme of life so much that they have lost contact with their inner sources of  transcendent vision, and thus are out of balance. Roszak is the author of The Making of a Counter Culture. Dave Collamer is a member of HGP. He retired from teaching high school science and moved from to Portland in 2010. Dave has always been interested in philosophy and history.
