Dr. Dieter Duhm (PhD Sociology) is a historian, author and psychoanalyst born in 1942 in Berlin, Germany. He is the initiator of the “Plan of the Healing Biotopes,” a global peace plan. From 1967, he engaged in the Marxist left, which included playing a leading role in the German students’ movement. In 1972 his well-known book “Angst im Kapitalismus” (Fear in Capitalism) was published. It established an intellectual connection between political revolution and individual liberation.
The year 1975 saw a distancing from leftist dogmatism and shift towards a more thorough human alternative. This led to the establishment of the “Bauhuette” project: a three-year social experiment with 40 participants in Germany’s Black Forest. The theme was “founding a community in our times.” Questions the experiment embraced include the origin, meaning, and aim of human existence on planet Earth. Arising from the experiment came outlines for a new possibility of existence, including concepts of ‘free love,’ ‘spiritual ecology,’ and ‘resonance technology.’
In 1995, together with his partner the Theologian Sabine Lichtenfels and others, he founded Tamera Peace Research Centre in Portugal, which today has more than 160 co-workers. Dieter Duhm has dedicated his life to creating an effective forum for a global peace-initiative which is a match for the destructive forces of the capitalistic globalization.
His books in English include: The Sacred Matrix (2006), Future without War (2007), Eros Unredeemed: The World Power of Sexuality (2010), and Towards a New Culture (2012) and Terra Nova: Global Revolution and the Healing of Love (2015).
