The Need for the Principle of the SDI Today!

Program in PDF format

Press Release

Presentations and Dialogue (Q and A)

Greetings to the Conference


This SDI-SDE conference is the third in a series of international conferences sponsored by the Schiller Institute to change international policy and thinking. Human civilization is currently threatened by the most dire crisis in modern history: an ongoing disintegration of the world economic system, leading into a threatened thermonuclear confrontation, and deepened by cultural degeneration. A shift to a new paradigm is the only way forward. This paradigm shift must address the axioms underlying today’s catastrophic policies, and must be as fundamental as that axiomatic shift which moved European civilization out of the Middle Ages into modern times, with all its breakthroughs in natural science and Classical artistic composition. Visit for video presentations and to engage in dialogue with the speakers.

Transcripts of the conference proceedings will be linked from this page as they become available. Audios will also be linked from the audios page, and videos from the Conferences Website,
