Abstract: Few would deny that our world today has been drastically transformed by science and technology. But there is also a growing uneasiness as to whether this transformation is indeed for the better. There is now enough of a challenge posed to the modernist view that saw social development largely as technological development. The environmentalists have been instrumental in leading the charge against this vision of development. While their focus has been on the disastrous impact of science and technology on our environment, they have also succeeded in broadening the terms of the debate to include fundamental questions on the nature of development, limits to growth, ethical responsibility of scientists and so on.
