Intro:

As we enter the 2nd decade of the 21st century, need for wisdom in dealing with human nature & our natural environment has urgency as never before. As an independent community tv producer I have been climbing on the shoulders of great minds of America, not only increase my own understanding of two key priority challenges we face as a nation, America, a leader among nations on earth.

The two key priority topics for our generation & our children are (1) human nature (2) understand & respect earth's natural heritage, particularly, the Sea.

at this module, I will briefly introduce all five great minds with some images associated from the "Great Minds' series of my community service tv show, "Our Family Origins', here at Fairfax, VA.

Only 'great minds' not yet done, but in planning is Edward O. Wilson, a professor emeritus at a great American university, and still alive today. It is interesting to note, when B.F. Skinner was still alive, Wilson & Skinner debated the classic "Nature vs. Nurture" debate from the opposite corner, Skinner, for "nurture' dominated humanity, while Wilson argued "nature' dominated humanity.

Truth is probably closer to the fact, each of us, is often a "prisoner" of our environment as well as our genes to a great extent. But not completely. Value of "individual" mind must still be debated while we must climb on the shoulders of these five "great minds' , reflected on each of these five classic books.

Join me in this pursuit of knowledge and celebration for the sake of each of our own wisdom, on a family, community, nation, and as 'friends of earth "?
