This audio recording consists of three speakers Dr. Thomas Altizer, Rabbi Richard L. Rubenstein, and Charles H. Long. Dr. Altizer speaks first, giving a lecture on the disappearance of theological language. Altizer uses multiple prominent literary authors to illustrate how humanity cannot exist without “brotherhood.” The second speaker, Rabbi Rubenstein, delivers a critique and analysis of Dr. Altizer’s lecture in his own terms. He is followed by Charles H. Long who also critiques Altizer’s lecture and stresses that America needs to confront its problems of the past if it expects to make it in the future. The recording closes with a question and answer session with the panel of lecturers.


Various short 2-4 second breaks during audio recording.
