Brave New World: Idea of the Future

- Imagine a life of luxury and happiness. Sounds like a dream . . . but what if it was reality. Aldous Huxley's novel Brave New World explains how society turns into a dystopian future.

Therefore, he became a genius and even a prodigy for being brilliant and creative (Napierkowski and Stanley 32-34). He grew up to be a famous author, making science fiction and futuristic novels....   [tags: luxury, dystopian future, aldoues huxley]

Reinventing a New Future for NASA

- On July 8, 2011 space shuttle Atlantis blasted off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida for the very last time, keeping on George Bush’s plans to bring the space shuttle program to an end. This not only brought an end to a mission, but an end to NASA as we know it. With the ongoing budget cuts to major federal programs, including NASA, further expansion for the future seems very bleak. A program as storied as NASA has been in the past, why is the government letting it go so easily. Defunding of a program as important as NASA is to our everyday lives should be met with opposition and is a major problem in the world today....   [tags: Space Travel]

A New Approach to a Healthier Future

- There is a great deal of fear concerning obesity among Canadians from all walks of life. Despite efforts to curb obesity in Canada, the percent of overweight Canadians is currently on the rise. Such interventions include educating Canadians on healthier eating habits and the importance of regular exercise, but the most prevalent message of all is the promotion of weight loss. This message is particularly dangerous, especially among children and youths. I argue that the Canadian health care system must adopt weight management in the place of weight loss and end the standard use of body mass index (BMI) in order to successfully combat obesity....   [tags: Health ]

Brave New World by Huxley and Future Predictions

- Brave New World by Huxley and Future Predictions Due to the “Enlightenment” belief in understanding through science and the scientific innovations of the “Industrial Revolution” during the 18th and 19th Centuries in Europe and America, the notion that society could be vastly improved through scientific progress pervaded “western” culture. Naturally, these advances were expected to culminate in the 20th Century. However, the shear brutality and scale of World War I and the hopelessness of the world economic depression of the 1930’s destroyed prior expectations and new socio-economic and political movements emerged, such as: Social Darwinism, Eugenics, Marxism, Fascism, Nazism, Fordism (whic...   [tags: Brave New World Huxley Essays]

The Death of Creativity in Brave New World

- The Death of Creativity in Brave New World Aldous Huxley, in his distopian novel,Brave New World, presents a horrifying view of a possible future in which society has become a prisoner of the very technology it hoped would save us. In Brave New World Huxley's distortion of technology, religion, and family values, is much more effective than his use of literary realism found in his depiction of a savage reservation. Through his use of distortion Huxley tells a classic tale with the theme of, be careful what you wish for, because it may not truly be what you wanted....   [tags: Brave New World]

The Application of Utopia in Brave New World

- The Application of Utopia in Brave New World      Aldous Huxley's Brave New World illustrates the loss of morality when established standards are replaced by amoral criteria.  In his novel, Huxley criticizes the practical applications of Utopia in actual society.

Postman's Analysis of Brave New World

- Postman's Analysis of Brave New World As analyzed by social critic Neil Postman, Huxley's vision of the future, portrayed in the novel Brave New World, holds far more relevance to present day society than that of Orwell's classic 1984. Huxley's vision was simple: it was a vision of a trivial society, drowned in a sea of pleasure and ignorant of knowledge and pain, slightly resembling the world of today. In society today, knowledge is no longer appreciated as it has been in past cultures, in turn causing a deficiency in intelligence and will to learn....   [tags: Brave New World]
