5: Men and Learning
Can education help resolve our confusions and our oversimplifications? Education is the training of children to fit adult roles. In our class-stratified and competitive system education helps to isolate individuals and to intensify personal loneliness and anxiety. Obsolescence is the mark of a rapidly evolving technology, so also with human beings. In a changing society the experience of the old is useless, but closer co-operation between the very young and the 1 under fifties ' may yet enable us to cope with the future.

Reflections, from a Jewish standpoint, on the medieval Passion Play and the notion of deicide
† by RABBI IGNAZ MAYBAUM
The accusation of ' 'deicide.' though never a part of Christian doctrine, has traditionally bedevilled relations between Christians and Jews. Dr. Maybaum examines the role actually assigned to the Jews in the Gospels and the Passion Play.
