Description from Dust Jacket:
In these pages some ofthe world's msot able creative thinkers meet the urgent need to bridge the gulf between the intellectual pioneers of our exciting time and the intelligent layman who cannot keep up with the challenging developments in sciences, the humanities, and the arts.

The editors of The Saturday Evening Post have invited a number of eminent people to survey and appraise the significant ideas and advances in knowledge in the twentieth century, and, futhermore, to do so in their own language and mode of thought. So appreciative has been the readers' reception that is was decided to make these intellectual adventures permanently available in book form. This single volume reflects the mainstreams of contemporary thought.
