Abstract

The crisis of our times is that we have science without wisdom. This is the crisis behind all the others. Population growth, the lethal character of modern war and terrorism, immense differences in wealth and power around the globe, annihilation of indigenous people, cultures and languages, impending depletion of natural resources, destruction of tropical rain forests and other natural habitats, rapid extinction of species, pollution of sea, earth and air, and above all global warming: all these relatively recent crises have been made possible by modern science and technology.
