Eros Unredeemed: The World Power of Sexuality
by Dieter Duhm
“I have written this book because it was inevitable. The issue of sexual love had to be seen and dealt with from a different perspective. It is the issue of our time, although the proclaimed slogans may sound different. It is said that the sexual revolution is a thing of the past, but from within, it hasn’t really started yet. Today more people suffer or become ill as a result of an unresolved longing for sex and love than from environmental pollution.”
There cannot be peace on earth as long as there is war in love.
In a direct and committed language the author describes the state of love in our culture today. He places the unsolved issues of jealousy, free love, faithfulness, longing, impotence, morals etc. at the center of the question of truth, non-violence and peace. From the experience of free love he develops new perspectives for a new way of living, where love between two people no longer excludes free love. He describes the philosophical and social basis for a culture in which jealousy is no longer a natural law, where sexual desires no longer have to be suppressed and where faithfulness between two lovers no longer breaks down because of a too narrow vision of love. “Knowing love” is the term he uses for the process of developing a culture without sexual repression, fear and violence.
Words of Praise
“Dieter Duhm’s book Eros Unredeemed is important for everyone to read – because it is provocative. It shakes up the rigid way of thinking most people have. It is a plan for a society and a way of life that I’ve been longing for since I was 16. High-Tech in War – Neanderthal in Love, such chapters are simply true.”
“Of all the books about partnership that have been so popular in the last few years none of them has dealt with the issues of sexuality, eros and love as honestly and as thoughtfully as the book Eros Unredeemed by Dieter Duhm.”

“ Eros Unredeemed is so true that I cannot add anything to it. I am grateful for so much courage and I hope that these thoughts about sexual liberation can be realized.”
