The new page by Federico Mayor( Book )

36 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in 7 languages and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The notion of a 'new page' first occurred to me in 1988 as the first agreements on nuclear non-proliferation and on a genuine reduction in tactical and strategic missiles came within reach. Changes in the world, notably rapid transformation in the then Soviet Union, began to indicate that we were coming to the end of the civilization of war that had dominated the lives of all who have lived through the middle decades of the century. The 'new page' which we are turning in this book is one of a culture of peace, based on a culture of democracy. It is a transition fraught with all the dangers of moving into the unknown without much guidance from our personal or collective memories. If this transition can be successful, we will at long last have the possiblity of changing radically our economic, social and political perceptions and entering a new renaissance of hope and creativity in our lifetimes

Science and power by Federico Mayor( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and Turkish and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Science is the most powerful tool of the twentieth century, the 'ping' force of modern society. But is its influence properly harnessed? As physicists explore the fundamental nature of matter and molecular biologists uncover the very nature of life, many people feel threatened. Can human beings retain their dignity and freedom in the face of such great powers for good and evil? The issues, though new in content, are no different in nature from those that have surrounded science since its birth in Ancient Greece. For centuries it struggled to free itself from the constraints of religious dogmas. Success led to an age of enlightenment, when nature for the first time began to yield its secrets, but the Industrial Revolution created new threats. Science had won its freedom of inquiry only to discover that it risked becoming an instrument of the state. 'Science and Power' examines the often-difficult relationship between scientists and those who govern them. A distinguished group of contributors looks at the history of this relationship, where it stands today, and what needs to be done to ensure that science is used in future for the greatest good of the greatest number. This book should interest all those concerned about science and society: scientists, policy-makers and citizens with an interest in the future of the world in which they live"--Publisher's descriptionx, p.

Memory of the future by Federico Mayor( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Memory of the future is a title that makes us sit up and think. As we have travelled through time, we have been quick to understand what we once looked upon as being the future. This book contains something of everything: off-the-cuff thoughts on university education; the voicing of convictions grounded in the practice of democracy; the nuts and bolts of the concept of development, the jottings of man caught up by an ideal who is also, in his way, a travel writer'-yet further proof that UNESCO is an idea on the move
