A version of the Brunei Lecture on the interaction of science and technology given earlier this year at the Brunei College of Technology by R. V. Jones , C.B., c.B.E.,
Professor of Natural Philosophy in the University of Aberdeen
According to Professor Jones the interaction of science and technology made our country a great power-in spite of our politicians. But what is our position today? Looking back over two hundred years of our history we see the mistakes we made in many directions and Professor Jones asks: ' Could we go wrong again? '
