Fri 06 July 2012 by Thejaswi Puthraya

This book is a collection of essays by renowned author "Bertrand Russell" studying "The impact of Science on Society".

The first essay is the most enjoyable of the seven in the book and lists the major inventions from the wheel to the nuclear bomb and how they were responsible in demolishing some traditions of the day.

The other essays study the impact of science on democracy, war and the value system. In the last essay the author predicts if a scientific society can be stable.

The essays are not remarkable and may be your last choice if you've got nothing to read.
