JIDDU KRISHNAMURTI (1895-1986) was a modern philosopher and seer with a passion for enquiry and the pursuit of truth. One of his primary concerns was education. His numerous books explore the nature of human consciousness and the possibility of its transformation through enquiry and insight. Krishnamurti engaged in dialogue with many modern thinkers, commentators, politicians and scientists, including Aldous Huxley, Iris Murdoch, Jonas Salk, Ivan Illich, David Bohm, Bernard Levin and Indira Gandhi. He said that if young people could learn to see the conditioning of their race, nationality, religion, tradition and opinion, then they might become truly intelligent human beings for whom right action would follow.
