Potsdam Manifesto 2005

We have to learn to think in a new way

In the middle of the 20th century prominent opposing movements formed all over the world to stop the nuclear arms race. On 9th of July 1955 Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein published the Russell-Einstein-Manifesto. It was an ultimate calling for a new way of thinking that would guarantee war, in the future, to be completely banned as an instrument of politics and conflict resolution.

On the occasion of the Einstein-Year 2005 Hans-Peter Dürr, J. Daniel Dahm and Rudolf zur Lippe composed the Potsdam Manifesto 2005 "We have to learn to thinkin a new way" and its mother-script, the Potsdam "Denkschrift" 2005.
