Description

Aldous Huxley predicts that the most pressing problems facing democracy in the following ten years will be the population explosion, the arms race, and rising nationalism. He suggests that shifting our attention from bad politics to enlightened ecological understanding may help prevent war. This opening meeting of a symposium held at the Center on Prospects for Democracy is introduced by Robert M. Hutchins and includes discussion. [ca. Nov. 30, 1962].
