Pressestimmen

"A brilliant tour de force, Brave New World may be read as a grave warning of the pitfalls that await uncontrolled scientific advance. Full of barbed wit and malice-spiked frankness. Provoking, stimulating, shocking and dazzling" Observer "Such ingenious wit, derisive logic and swiftness of expression, Huxley's resources of sardonic invention have never been more brilliantly displayed" The Times "A fantastical look at the world in the future which made me look differently at the present" -- Katie Melua Observer "Lucid and well-reasoned...one is captivated by Huxley's knowledge and his even more extraordinary intelligence" Sunday Times

In his study, Mr Huxley discusses some of the ideas and observations which inspired him for his futuristic novel "Brave New World". Among the main topics, overpopulation of some parts of the world was a major concern for the author. The rapidly increasing number of people in relation to limited natural resources may lead to social instability and jeopardise the well being of individuals. There is a correlation between people multiplying too rapidly and the rise of totalitarian systems of government. Then the author discusses the issue of what should be undertaken with congenially or mentally insufficient organisms which are the result of unfavourable mutations. Should they be allowed to "contaminate" the genetic pool from which the members of our species will have to draw?
Another problem of modern societies is the fact that the dehumanising effects of their over-organisation, especially in cities, may lead to a high incidence of schizophrenia. In "Brave New World" we see a society where people are never alone. This tendency can already be observed today as William Whyte rightly observes in "The Organisation Man". Concepts like "socially oriented behaviour, team work, group dynamics, acquisition of social skills" are very trendy nowadays.
Other topics are discussed by Mr Huxley such as the concentration of communication-power in the hands of a few big concerns, the danger of people assembled in large crowds who then cease to have any judgement or will of their own - overwhelmed as they are by simplistic slogans - the question of children being conditioned by advertising from a very early age to buying specific products, the problems caused by widely available drugs such as "soma" and the effectiveness of subliminal projections and hypnopaedia.
An altogether interesting read which allows a better understanding of Mr Huxley's "Brave New World".

Format: Taschenbuch
“Brave New World Revisited” ist keine Fortsetzung von “Brave new World” sondern eine Sammlung von Assays von Aldous Huxley zu Themenkomplexen, die er in seinem berühmten Roman behandelt. Auch in diesen Aufsätzen zeigt er sich visionär, leider lesen Politiker solche Bücher nicht und daher ist vieles von dem so eingetroffen, wie er es 1958 prophezeit.

Das Buch umfasst:

I Over-Population:
“Over-population leads to economic insecurity and social unrest. Unrest and insecurity lead to more control by central governments and an increase of their power. In the absence of a constitutional tradition, this increased power will probably be exercised in a dictatorial fashion. Even if Communism had never been invented, this would be likely to happen. But Communism has been invented. Given this fact, the probability of over-population leading through unrest to dictatorship becomes a virtual certainty. It is a pretty safe bet that, twenty years from now, all the world's over-populated and underdeveloped countries will be under some form of totalitarian rule — probably by the Communist party.” – Ach, wenn es nur der Kommunismus ware. Heute regieren Konzerne und Banken.
“But liberty, as we all know, cannot flourish in a country that is permanently on a war footing, or even a near-war footing. Permanent crisis justifies permanent control of everybody and everything by the agencies of the central government.” – Ich sag nur NSA Affäre Sommer 2013.

II Quantity, Quality, Morality
“that democracy can hardly be expected to flourish in societies where political and economic power is being progressively concentrated and centralized. But the progress of technology has led and is still leading to just such a concentration and centralization of power.

Mr. Huxley started warning us in 1932, with his masterpiece, "Brave New World." In this essay-style analysis of his own book, written twenty-six years later, he takes it one big step further. Addressing everything from overpopulation to overorganization, his words ring more true with every passing year. Our society needs to lift its head from the computer screen for a few hours to read this critical work. Few, if any, have said so much in so little space. Mr. Huxley is one of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century, and it is a criminal shame that his words are not more widely read. We should put down our endless self-help manuals and learn where our ills really begin. We need to understand how the roots serve the tree before we can improve upon the tree. Mr. Huxley is an expert gardener...

Be aware that this isn't a sequel to BNW but an explanation of the dangerous mentioned in it, dangers that grow more real with every passing year. Able commentary on issues of conformity, identity, and thought control.

Von Ein Kunde am 28. Juli 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
"'We also predestine and condition. We decant our babies as socialized human beings, as Alphas or Epsilons, as future sewage workers or future...' He was going to say 'future world controllers,' but correcting himself, said future directors of World Hatcheries.'" Brave New World is a book about the future of Earth. Although Aldous Huxley wrote it around 1932, it seems like a very realistic forecast for what the future will bring. Already society is becoming more and more like the one that Huxley created. Mindless forms of entertainment are everywhere, things like bad movies and games. The world is becoming more crowded than ever before; the population will double in not too long. Brave New World is very much like Fahrenheit 451. But instead of total chaos, there is over organization. The destination of a person is decided long before they are even born. Babies are conditionedto fit their social group, Alpha through Epsilon. People in higher social groups get more respect and have better jobs than those of the lower. Despite how exciting this book may seem, my interest level was taken on a roller coaster ride throughout the story because of the wavering quality in which it was written, and the ending was not so good as it could have been. However, I highly recommend it to anyone concerned about the future, and it is very important to society in order to prevent a world like the one in Brave New World from developing.
