The science of hope with Jonas Salk( Visual )

(Producer) Jonas Salk is the developer of the polio vaccine and founder of the Salk Institute in La Jolla, California. He talks about AIDS research and how the technique of "negotiating" with the AIDS virus offers a way of thinking about human beings as "part of, not apart from" nature. Salk feels the development of an AIDS vaccine is just a matter of time and it is just a matter of strategy. Solutions come through asking the right question, because the answer pre-exists. It is the question that we have to define and discover. You don't invent the answer, you reveal the answer
American thought by Jonas Salk( Recording )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonas Salk, the discoverer of the Salk polio vaccine, sees America as moving into a closed system, with limited supplies of food, energy, etc. rather than the open one it had been accustomed to. This, he says, calls for new values and a new orientation, with greater emphasis on interdependence and sharing of resources
