Synopsis (from dust jacket):
The distinguished publisher of Scientific American discusses the shibboleth of the "two cultures" in the light of the scientific revolution and science's historic role in the humanist tradition.

In general the book discusses the history of science, the role of technology, the problem of education, technical and public, the revolution in man's labor, the problem of disarmament, the dollars and cents of abundance and under-development, the problems of peace, population, resources, and survival. Mr. Piel's insights are spiced with wit and irony, and reflect the ideas of an informed man, a lively, original, and eager mind, and a generous public spirit reminiscent of the time when the Owl of Athens was the symbol of the highest humanist tradition.
