Description

By Bertrand Russell

Bertrand Russell wrote Icarus or The Future of Science in 1923 as a reply to J. B. S. Haldaneļæ½s Daedalus. Within Daedalus Haldane imagined a world in which humans controlled their own evolution. In direct response to this Russell published Icarus or The Future of Science in which he argues that such power would ultimately be used not for idealistic ends but to strengthen the power of dominant groups.
