Description

Harvey Wheeler argues that the social impact of the modern world's intense scientific activity, as well as the rapidity with which the military-industrial complex seizes upon their discoveries, necessitates the "constitutionalization of science," which would put science under democratic control to ensure it works for the benefit of mankind. The Center's Neil Jacoby moderates a panel discussion in which Mr. Wheeler is joined by Helmut Krauch, Norman Peterson, and Lord Ritchie-Calder. Mar. 1, 1969.
