Overview

Publicat in 1958, eseul lui Aldous Huxley este un comentariu pe marginea romanului Minunata lume noua, exprimind aceeasi viziune pesimista asupra vietii si angoasa indusa de progresul stiintific si tehnologic in detrimentul valorilor morale. Autorul constata ca previziunile sale din 1931, cind scria Minunata lume noua, se adeveresc mai repede decit era de asteptat, dobindind un caracter aproape inevitabil. Suprapopularea si supraorganizarea ameninta din ce in ce mai mult libertatea individului, iar incercarile de a contracara manipularea, propaganda mincinoasa si spalarea creierelor par sortite esecului. Fortele cu care ne confruntam sint poate prea mari pentru a fi invinse, conchide Huxley, dar "este de datoria noastra sa facem tot ce ne sta in putere pentru a le opune rezistenta“.
