Snow, C. P.
In this book effects of technological developments on world conditions are discussed on the basis of the author's public statements made between 1959-70. A total of seven pieces is presented under the headings: The Two Cultures and the Scientific Revolution, The Two Cultures: A Second Look, The Case of Leavis and the Serious Case, Science and Government, Appendix to "Science and Government," The Moral Un-neutrality of Science, and The State of Siege. Analyses are concentrated on such aspects as the gap between the rich and poor countries of the world, educational influences on communication between two cultures, scientists and future-directed societies, the two-faced nature of technology, flood of overpopulation, scientific literacy, closed-politics forms, and political foresight for the next 30 years. The author points out that the educated young all over the West are becoming better prepared for the world's future dangers. (CC)
