Modern Science in Crisis
Association of Penang
Modern science has not succeeded in solving the Third World's social problems; instead it has begun to be used increasingly as an instrument for its further subjugation. With applications of modern science, we have created the potential for a high-tech holocaust that could wipe out mankind. Why? What could have gone wrong with the scientific enterprise? This book contains the Declaration and Conclusions of the International Conference on 'Crisis in Modern Science'. It discusses:
*How so-called scientific advancements in energy, agriculture, healthcare and telecommunications have left the Third World increasingly under the control of the rich nations;
*Indigenous systems of Third World science that have been supplanted and suppressed by modern science, and which should be promoted as alternatives for the future.
It provides a scathing and comprehensive critique of modern science, as well as the essential ideas for a reconstruction of holistic alternative science that respects life.
