Robert Irwin answers questions about his concepts and ideas. He does not seek to tell people how the world should be, rather he primarily wants people to act because he believes in the potential of human beings. He also recalls how a verbal attack by a group of social activists led him to study the writings of Karl Marx where he became fascinated with Marx’s position that life determines consciousness, and consciousness does not determine life. Irwin believes that if choice, freedom and creation exist, then consciousness must determine life to a certain degree.
