Julian S. Huxley , F.R.S.
In summarising the views of the experts on what the science of biology can do in the service of man Dr. Huxley will show that while man has learnt to reshape external nature, he has not yet learnt to control his own nature. The evidence suggests that the discoveries of the scientist should be much more widely applied, and that the future task of the biologist lies in human and social research.
