The nineteenth century believed firmly in the reality and inevitability of human progress, and held hopes which were probably exaggerated. In the twentieth century there has been a reaction to a pessimism which is perhaps equally exaggerated. The purpose of this series of talks, of which this is the second, is to discuss what we mean by progress ; whether history does indeed indicate a trend towards a better and more satisfying human life; and, if so, how progress is achieved.
At the end of each talk Dr. H. A.
Mess will briefly link up what has been said with the other talks in the series. This, it is hoped, will make the discussion in the Discussion Groups more valuable.
Last week listeners heard about progress in the nineteenth century, about doubts and disappointments and the shadow of the European War. Today Edwin Muir , the well-known author and book critic of The Listener, will discuss the plunge into the abyss-the Great War and the reaction to it since.

One of the most striking life stories that appeared in the series ' People You Hear ' was that of John Hilton , who began three times. He was disqualified after winning a scholarship; he was without the money to renew the patent of an invention now in world-wide use ; his health broke down. No man ever rose so indomitably from humble beginnings ; no series of talks ever gave more cheer to a large number of listeners than his weekly ' This and That' to unemployed people. John Hilton has been Professor of Industrial Relations at Cambridge since 1931, but perhaps he is even prouder of his Chairmanship of the Advisory Committee of Fellowship House-a club that he started with others for the unemployed at Cambridge.
