Description:

Aldous Huxley is assigned a stump that should make you think: “Medicine has made so much progress that you can hardly find a healthy man.” The statement is in line with Huxlei’s image of a totalitarian society projected in the future by the author of the best of the worlds. In a conference held at California Medical School in San Francisco in 1961, he told the audience that the next generation (mine, ours) will have pharmaceutical methods that will make her love her “own bondage,” to support dictatorships. without shedding tears, accepting concentration camps without suffering, giving up one’s own freedom rather with pleasure … I was reminded of this premonitory vision by re-reading a doctoral thesis, with many merits and far from the “negative utopias” in Huxley’s literature, strongly supported a few years ago by Alina Frunza.
