Writers in Society: Imagining Science: The Great Gap

on BBC One London

George Steiner on Imagining Science: The Great Gap

In tonight's programme the distinguished critic and author argues that very few 20th-century writers - with honourable exceptions like Thomas Mann and Borges - have taken up the immense imaginative challenge of science and technology. Later he answers questions from an audience at the Royal Institution, London.
