Brave New World
Huxley's Brave New World is a remarkable piece of writing which prophesies the futuristic world. The concept of nature through the character of John the Savage depicts volumes about the totalitarian state which the author portrays beautifully. The irony and satire with which he whips 1931 London society is worth reading.
Dr. Leon Kass, a prominent public intellectual said in a speech to the Manhattan Institute that the "train to Huxley's dehumanized Brave New World has already left the station".
Huxley's work is a brilliant masterpiece which is extraordinarily prophetic, challenging developments in science and technology. Genetic Engineering, mutations, and Bio-technological advancements will take man away from nature. Though these are advantageous, slowly and steadily the natural instincts in man are being 'civilized'.--Submitted by Allan Thai
