Description

Quoted from the author's "Foreword."

"THE most pressing need of America at the present critical juncture is not more  mechanisation but more character. Over four thousand years ago the social prophets of Egypt were hurling the same truth regarding their own land at the "technocrats" who built the pyramids, the greatest feats of engineering ever achieved in the ancient world. The process of mechanisation, which America has carried further than any other people, will and of course should go on, but shall it go on at the cost of character? The latest engineering vagary, a typical American fad called "technocracy," according to its vocal High Priest, is a complete substitute for all the normal processes of human society; and as for any traditional sense of social responsibilty we hear the pontifical deliverance that technocracy would even displace philanthropy! A glance around us at our present social situation discloses that this is only one of many points at which human experience is being blithely thrown overboard. Even in the public schools human development, which is the subject matter of history, is being displaced by a vague miscellany called "civics" or "social studies." The alleged educational authorities who are ruling history out of our schools are cumbered with little knowledge of human experience or the "development of humanity."1 Nevertheless it is obvious that no man without a knowledge of this development can claim to be an educated man."
