Energy and Technology: The Emergence of a New Agenda for Professional Association Leadership.
DeVore, Paul W.
Current and approaching crises in man's inhabitation of the Earth are discussed and enumerated. Education is proposed as a method of alleviating the social, ecological, psychological, and eventual biological pressures created by man's increasing subjugation to technology. The emerging pattern of disaster for man as a species is delineated, and a humanistic and philosophical approach to education is suggested as the only effective means by which to develop individuals capable of making the types of decisions that man's monumental technology has put him in the position of having to make. An extensive bibliography is appended. (LH)
