Abstract

Two quotations will serve as texts for this brief discourse on Science and Society: The late Dr. Edwin E. Slosson - "In our civilization the mechanical forces have forged ahead of the moral and intellectual forces. Modern man is like the Arab fisherman who liberated from the bottle genii he did not know how to control." Stuart Chase - "This is the last great adventure; the boldest, most exhilarating, most dangerous adventure that ever challenged the intelligence and spirit of mankind. From our brains have sprung a million wild horses, now running loose and almost certain sooner or later to run amuck. Where are the riders with the whirling rope; where are the light-hearted youth to mount, be thrown and rise to mount again?"
