Modern Science and the Capriciousness of Nature by Karl Rogers

Book Description

This book questions the way that modern science and technology are considered able to liberate society from the erratic forces of nature. Modern science is implicated in a gamble on a technological society that will replace the natural world with a 'better' one. The author questions the rationality of this gamble and its implications for our lives.
