- Considers whether man can find a way to make strong, permanent commitments in the face of constant change. Relates that in the nineteenth century, the Industrial Revolution wrought great changes in man's scientific, political, and economic life which many people felt heralded a permanent, stable utopia--a "golden city." Shows that in the twentieth century, vast new fields of knowledge have made man even more uncertain of the world he knows, and instead of a final utopia of nineteenth century industrial achievement, man must change his concepts to accept a still-changing universe.
