From the author’s preface: “To science we owe most of the material comforts of modern life: electric light, freedom — for some — from laborious drudgery, anaesthetics, and advances in medicine to which many owe relief from pain and illness. The list of benefits is long: benefits all relevant to our material welfare. But these benefits have been at a cost. Mankind seems to have lost all sense of purpose. And too often the apparent benefits have turned out to bring in their train great evils: the atomic bomb, napalm, thalidomide, and the like.”
