Wege in der Gefahr
Wege in der Gefahr
By Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker
Hanser, 1976, 268 pp.

A much-respected German philosopher-physicist, long concerned with contemporary issues, presents an analysis of the dangers of today's world including the likelihood of war, and suggests steps appropriate to these dangers. A penetrating and disturbing tract that also assesses the future uses of atomic energy and the course of economic development. An important book that tries to advance what it argues is the principal necessity today: a change in our understanding of the world.
