Theme of science technology and environment in Russell’s essay ‘science and human life’
Science has made life super easy. Man has highs of luxurious articles with him and he is enjoying them. But at the cost of the environment, science and humans both didn’t consider nature in the right way, they pretend that they are the preservers of the environment, in-fact they are destroying it with the help of science technologies. Russell has concerns with all the objects of environment like soil exhortation, using raw material and uranium warfare. Problem of raw material is much larger than the problem of food. He is a man of scientific method even though he denies unwanted use of natural resources. He also favors science technology by saying that it is a kind of glorious knowledge achieved by man’s wisdom, a scholar can understand that knowledge is dynamic and cannot say how much beneficial or harmful it will prove in future. Modern literature has done much to protect the environment. He congratulates those who want to travel in space, trying to make themselves poets or composers because they advance the techniques. Lastly, he rests the decision on humans, how they will cope up with the environment and Science Technology.
