Abstract

The solution of today's major social problems will come from more and better technology--not from less technology. For technology is just another name for human knowledge. We need to deepen our scientific knowledge, broaden our repertory of alternatives, and strengthen our technology of decision procedures. Above all, we need a more profound understanding of Man himself, for all human problems have their roots in our own nature.
