We have all seen technical changes of astounding, stunning and overwhelming consequence. We can find technical solutions to many of our problems. We can think the unthinkable and do the undoable - yet are we a lot better off? We can do magic on our computers, land a person on the moon, analyse the gases surrounding Jupiter. We have learned brilliantly the means of accomplishing scientific and technical advance. When we look at our present capacity to solve problems it is apparent that we do our best when the problems involve little or no social context.
