Renewing the Boundless Resource.
A lecture on the critical issues of the 1970s from the vantage point of changing attitudes was presented at the 1979 annual meeting of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. The review summarizes how the public's basic attitudes toward government, world interdependence, technology, and economic equity, for example, changed policies toward defense, the environment, economic growth, and international affairs. The shift in some important attitudes are attributed to the effect of formal or informal education. A primary task for higher education is shown to be the use of modern technology to meet human needs and purposes. Disarmament, human rights, and world resources are also discussed. (SW)
