Man’s Right to Knowledge

CBS Radio

Based on Columbia University’s bicentennial theme, “Man’s right to knowledge and free use thereof,” this series, participated in by some of the world’s most distinguished scholars, stimulated a crusade for free inquiry and free expression—and helped to give to millions of individuals a deeper understanding of their rights to knowledge. The unprecedented impact of this series, at a critical period in history, resulted in extended coverage in the United States and throughout the world to be rebroadcast in many languages.
